Delia Roddy searching for her mother Delia R. B. Myrecks's family

MR. EDITOR--I desire to find my
mother's people, whom she was
separated from about 1845. She,
prior to this time, lived in Ogel-
thorpe [Ogelthorpe] county, Georgia. My mother
was Delia R. B. Myrecks; her moth-
er [mother] was Sarah, two brothers Felix
and Frank. All belonged to Capt.
R. B. Myrecks. My mother's father
was Hal. McQuarter. At or about
the time above mentioned, brought
about by a sale which took place in
the estate of said Myrecks, at which
eight of his colored people were
sold, with whom went my mother's
mother, Sarah Myrecks. A man by
the name of Pit Lumkin bought
her; and a short time after this he
bought my mother's husband, Hal,
from the aforesaid McQuarter. My
mother also remembers that her
grandfather's name was Frank, and
her grandmother Dola; they be-
longed [belonged] to McQuarter. Some time
later my mother was sold by Capt.
Bob Myrecks to Dave Roddy, of
Rhea county, Tenn. We now live
in Roane county, in the town of
Kingston, and I am known by the
name of Delia Roddy. Address
Mr. M.C. Roddy, care of Rev. J.
T. Henry, Kingston, Tenn.
