About the 2nd of April 1865, (the time of the
occupation of Selma by the Federal raiders under
command of Gen. Wilson,) my father, a
colored man, named AUSTIN DUDLEY, upon the
evacuation of the city by the raiders, left with
them. Since that time nothing has been heard
from him by his friends and relatives here.
Anyone, knowing anything as to his whereabouts,
would, by sending such information to
this office, greatly relieve a distressed wife and
his anxious son. Address Messenger, Selma,
Alabama. BILL DUDLEY.
