Katie Hubbard searching for her father Ben Berket (formerly Berket Doncler)

Governor Johnston has received a
letter from a colored woman who is
pursuing an industrious search for her
old father. He is somewhere in Ala-
bama [Alabama] and his daughter has not seen
nor heard of him for over a score of
Katie Hubbard, the woman in ques-
tion [question], writes that he left Jasper County
in Mississippi in 1867. At that time
his name was Berket Doncler, he hav-
ing [having] belonged to Mrs Susan Doncler
before the war. He went to Mobile
where he changed his name to Ben
Berket. If any one knows of any such
colored man it will relieve the anxiety
of his daughter to get the information.
Her address is Box 42, Laurel, Jones
County, Miss.
