Mrs. Lucinda Hackett searching for her sister Amanda Jackson

MR. EDITOR— I wish to inquire for my sister, Amanda Jackson. Francis Henry Hill sold her to a Negro trader, Mr. Sidney Thomas, about 1848 or 1849. We all formerly belonged to the Murchestney estate, but fell to Nancy Murchestney when she married Francis Henry Hill. We lived between Madison and Culpepper Court-house, on the Powel Hills farm, Madison county, Va. Our mother was named Eveline, and father Paul Jackson. Mother had six children when Amanda was sold, to-wit: Violet, the oldest; Amanda, Lucinda, Martha, Kate and Ellen. Address me at Brenham, Texas, care of Alex Hackett, my husband, or Rev. W. Hartley Jackson, P. C. MRS. LUCINDA HACKETT.
