In relation to the whereabouts of one colored man
named Benjamin Franklin Colbert, son of
Mahardy Colbert, of Chocktaw and Chickasaw
Nation. It appears that Benjamin Franklin Colbert,
was claimed to be a recruit, enlisted by Captain Van
Horn, for the 1st Colored regiment, at Sax and Fox
Agency, Kansas, in April or May, 1863. When last
heard from, on the 28th day of October, 1863, he was
in the guard house at Kansas City, Missouri, under
charge of desertion. His parents are very anxious
to learn whether he is dead or alive, and where he
is or may be found. Any information in relation to
him will be liberally rewarded.
Please address William Roberts, 1st Indian Regiment,
Fort Gibson, C.N.
