A small fortune is in store for Nellie
Beecham, colored, who lived during
the war near Richmond Va., and
whose daughter Augusta Ann was
sold when about 12 years old to Bert
Leatherwood and Robert Golikely
slave speculators of Richmond, on
the death of her master, Sam Beecham,
by his brother Ike, in 62, 63, or
64 to pay certain debts the deceased
owed. Credicks and Wards were
near by slave owners. The undersigned's
Uncle Pompey fed her on
goose and duck eggs when a child
and she is now desires of finding her
mother who was a member of the
Rasberry Campbellite church.
Any information that will be the
means of finding the said Nellie
Beecham will be liberally rewarded
by her daughter, now.
MRS. ANN HAMPTON.
