Henry Mills searching for his mother Nancy and brothers Daniel and Scott

MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire for my mother and brothers. Mother's name was Nancy; her husband was Obie Dial; she belonged to Samuel B. Rice, who was pastor of a Lutheran church at Stanton, Va. I left her Amons, Va., about 8 years before the war. She had a daughter named Polly who was burned to death, before she left the old place. Her son, Daniel, was sold to some Negro traders. The other two sons were twins and named after Gens. Taylor and Scott. Taylor died from injuries received from Sam B. Rice and I fighting over a chair; he being a baby caused his death. I learned after I left that my mother was sold to a doctor in Lynchburg, Va. Address Henry Mills, Ellenger, Fayette county, Texas.
