Response given to Betsy Chatman searching for brother George Chatman or George Chapman

The Charlotte Gazette, published
at Smithfield, Va., publishes the
"Betsy Chatman wishes to obtain
some intelligence of her brother,
George Chatman, colored, who lived
at Tazewell C. H. at the time of the
surrender. The last intelligence
heard of him, still at that place, was
about 14 years ago. Any intelli-
gence [intelligence] respecting him will be thank
fully [thankfully] receieved by his sister, Betsy
Chatman, at this place.––Clinch
Valley News please copy."
Reference is doubtless made to
George Chapman, who lived east of
town on the farm of Capt. Wm. E.
Peery. "Uncle" George died more
than a year ago, leaving a number
of children, one of whom is Allen
Chapman, who lives at Bluefield,
W. VA.
