Jemima Patton (formerly Jemima Cobbs) searching for her mother Rachael Cobbs, father January Cobbs, sisters, and brothers

DEAR EDITOR:-Please allow me to inquire through your paper for my people. The last time I saw them was in East Tennessee, about 15 miies from Athens, down on the old stage road. Their names were Rachel Cobbs, my mother, and January Cobbs, my father, and sisters Amy Cobbs, and Priscilla, who lived with Miss Rister Frarstone, and brothers Peter and Moses Cobbs. Myself, mother, father and brother John were sold in Athens to Mr. Cobbs; John staid there and I was carried to the Western district by Mr. Tom Hoard, and from there to McMinnville, Tenn. My name at that time was Jemima Cobbs, now I am Jemima Patton. Address me at Prairie Plains, Coffee county, Tennessee. JEMIMA PATTON.
