MR. EDITOR – I wish to inquire
for my relatives – my mother, two

in Maryland. My mother’s name
was Mollie, my sisters’ names were

oldest; my brothers’ names were

all belonged to Mary Stewart, who
married a Mr. Fred. Terret, in Virginia,
and she carried us all to

keeper, when I left, my next
brother, Lloyd, was sold to Mr.
