Esther Turner searching for her mother, sisters, brothers, aunts, and uncle

MR. EDITOR--I wish to find the
following named persons: My moth
er Sally, (father Abraham Turner,
died during the war), brothers
Isaiah, George Washington, often
called Lit, and one whose name I
cannot remember; sisters Sally
Eliza, Nancy Franklin, and Matilda;
aunts Eliza, Phillis, and Winnei;
and uncle Mack. I am the oldest
child and got lost from her and the
children during the war, as she
stopped to get some meal from a
mill, and the army soldiers moved
on. I have never seen or heard
from them since. I think it was
Sherman's raid in North Carolina.
Before the war we were owned by
Gary Druhorne, in Simpson, N.C.,
and after his death his widow mar-
ried a Mr. Hudson, and at her death
we were divided off to the children
of Gary Druborne. His children
were George T., one I cannot re-
member, Martha Jane, Francis Ann
and Nora. Uncle Mack was sold to
Blaney Williams, near or in Clin-
ton, N.C. I was called by the
names Nettie, Nep, Hetty and Big
Sister by my brothers and sisters.
Their whereabouts will be gladly
learned by me. Address me, Ester
Turner, New Haven, Conn.
