Ed Kneeright searching for his grandmother Lucy Walter and her children Rachel, Cherry, and Sam Walter

MR. EDITOR:--I desire to inquire
for my grandmother and children.
We belonged to Mrs. Peggy Achili.
She lived in South Carolina, Wins-
borough [Winsborough] county; my mother died
there when I was three weeks old.
Mrs. Achilli moved us to Missis-
sippi [Mississippi], and stopped in Yallabusha
county. I was there until I was 12
years old. After this we were car-
ried [carried] to Greenwood, there to the
trading yard and sold at a sheriff
sale. We were bought by Ben
Walters, who lived in this city; he
gave me to his daughter, Mary
Simmons, and she brought me to
Texas. My grandmother's name
was Lucy Walter; her children,
Rachel, Cherry and Sam Walter;
my father was Jack Walter; my
mother was Mary Achilli. Since I
have been free I took the name of
Ed. Kneeright. Address Ed. Knee-
right [Kneeright], at La Grange, Fayette co.,
Texas, in the care of M. Smith,
