William Miller searching for his five brothers and sister

MR. EDITOR--I wish to inquire
for my relatives, father and mother,
five brothers and two sisters.
Father's name was Armsted Hop-
kins; mother Faanie Vinson; broth-
ers, oldest Abraham, Jim, Arm-
stead, Sam and Daniel Vinson; sis-
ters, Mary and Ann Vinson. Mother
and all the children belonged to
Andrew Vinson, and were sold in
Columbus, S. C., to a Mr. Logan,
who brought us to Mobile; then
mother, sister Ann and myself were
brought to Mississippi by Charlie
Miller, in Lauderdale county.
Mother is dead. Sister Ann is
living near me; she is married to
Dick Bir[illegible]s. Father died in South
Carolina; he belonged to R. Hop-
kins. We went by the name of
Vinson. My last owner was Miller,
so I go by that name. I have not
heard from any of my people in 15
or 20 years. If any of your many
readers know of the whereabouts of
the above named they will do a
kind favor by addressing William
Miller, Lauderdale Station, Miss.
