Mary Clarra (formerly Mary Spotts) searching for her daughters Ginsey and Nancy

DEAR EEAR:––I am very anxious to find the whereabouts of my two daughters. They left me ten years before the war, right here, and were taken to Texas. We belonged to Thos. J. McGuffen, a son of Hugh McGuffen. They were carried away by Mrs. Smith. The eldest was Ginsey, 10 years old; Nancy 8 years. It strikes me that they stopped near Natchitoches or Milan. I have no kin but in Georgia, Burk county, Waynesboro. My mother's name was Siley; father's was Thomas. Father belonged to Thos. P. Jones; mother belonged to the widow Belcher. I use to go by Mary Spotts, not Mary Clarra. Address me, care of Rev. H. J. Wright, Natchitoches, La. May 29.
