Special Dispatch to the Intelligencer.
FINDLAY, O., April 10.-A remarkable
reunion of mother and daughter who
had been cruelly torn from each other
at the slave block in 1863 has just taken
place in this city. The mother's name is
Mrs. Anna Mollie Wright, an aged col-
ored [colored] woman of Findlay, and the daugh-
ter [daughter] is Mrs. Anna Freedman, of Clarks-
burg [Clarksburg], W. Va. For twenty-nine years
the mother has been searching for her
missing daughter. She was found
through a chance remark of a colored
man from Clarksburg, W. Va., who
said that Mrs. Freedman, of his town,
had been writing letters to Dover,
Tenn., where she had been sold with
her family when a little girl.
Mrs. Wright thought this was strange
and wrote to a colored minister in
Clarksburg. The letter was read in the
church and led to the reunion of mother
and daughter.
