George Terry searching for his sister Lucy

MR EDITOR.— I wish to inquire for my sister, Lucy, who belonged to the man who raised us, Daniel Terry, in Virginia, about 23 miles from Danville, in the country. She was sold to a Negro trader when I was a small boy. I have not seen her since. It was forty odd years ago. Perhaps she is yet living. Our father belonged to a man named Jessie Wootson, and our mother's name was Sallie, belonging to Daniel Terry, and who had a brother named John Quincy; he was raised at a place about three miles from Spring Garden. The man that kept a store at that time was Joe Anderson, and he married one of our mistresses, named McMurry. They lived between two creeks called John Run and Sweeter Fork; which entered into Sandy Creek. My father belonged to a Methodist preacher named Jessee Woostan, and I was brought to Texas and sold thirty years ago. I was sold in Galveston Texas, and am living here yet. Address any information to George Terry, corner 10th street and avenue I, Galveston, Texas.
