Eliza Montgomery searching for her brother Dick Bush

Baptist Times (Garnett, KS)

March 1892 [published in a monthly newspaper]


I wish to find my brother, Dick
Bush. who was born in Tennessee,
and wae the slave of Edward Bush, a
negro trader, who was our father.
My mother, Fannie Bush, was sold to
Thompson, a negro trader, who sold
her and left us two very small children
alone. I was then sold, in or near
Nashville, Tenn. to a Mr. Holiway
who brought me to Mo. I was very
small then and went by the name of
Elza Bush. I am married now, and
my name is Eliza Montgomery. The
last time I heard of my brother, he
was sold to some one in Texas. Any
information of his whereabouts will
be thankfully received. Address,

Eliza Montgomery, 912, 3rd. St.

Chilicothe, Mo
