H. B. Moore searching for his mother, father, and siblings

MR. EDITOR— Please allow me space in your valuable paper to inquire for my people which I left in Mississippi about the years 1849 or 1850, whose owners were the Gardner family. My father and mother was Phillip and Lucy Gardner; brothers were Anderson, Aaron, Harvy and Phillip; sisters were Ann, Amanda, Delia and Easter. We all belonged to a man named Gardener, who lived in Clark county, Miss; when he died we were sold and divided out; father and mother fell to Mr. Milton and carried with them Anderson and Amanda and Phillip and Easter; Ann was there at first. Aaron and Delia was carried somewhere about Lauderdale. I was carried to Attala county by George Gardner and sold to Bill Moore, then to Louisiana, and then to Texas, where I now live, a local preacher in the M.E. Church, where I expect to remain in the same. I will give thankful reward for any information. Pastors please read this letter to your congregation. If any of them can be heard of please address H. B. Moore, Caldwell, Burleson county, Texas.
