Campbell Siler searching for their family

DEAR EDITOR--I desire to hear
from my relatives. My mother,
Mary, belonged to Jess Siler, in
North Carolina. Her children were
Campbell, Oliver, Lucretia, and
Lucinda. We were sold by Siler
to Capt. Jarrett, in Georgia, in 1831.
We were sold to Thompson, who
swapped my mother and three children
to Judge Morton. That left
me in the Thompson family until
emancipation. My mother and
brother Oliver and sister Lucinda
were sold to a negro trader, Harris
Tharp, and I have not heard from
them since. My oldest sister and I
lived together until emancipation,
and she is here in Texas. Mother's
youngest brother was Levi Siler.
Address me in Brazos county
Texas, at Milican, care pastor of
M. E. Church.
