Charles Owens searching for his brother Harry Bowen

Information Wanted.

A colored man commonly called
Harry Bowen, escaped from his master,
Jerry Wayland, near St. Francisville
Mo., about New Years night 1859.

It is supposed that he went to
Chicago, and from there to Canada,
but has not been heard from since
his escape, notwithstanding the
three hundred dollars in specie offered
to the man hunters to capture
him. He was a large good looking
light colored man, and cost Wayland
$1,000 in Gold. His brother Charles
Owens is an industrious man living
near this city, and is anxious to hear
from him, and if this notice should
fall under his observation, or any one
having knowledge of his whereabouts,
they will confer a great favor
by addressing as above, Ottumwa,
Iowa.
