Peyton Waumack looking for his mother Clarissa Waumack, father Peyton, and siblings

DEAR EDITOR: I wish to make inquiries for my kinfolk. I left them in Virginia, near Farmville. They belonged to Mr. Waumack. Mother was Clarissa Waumack, father, Peyton, brothers, Edmond, Anderson, sisters, Lizzie and Julia. Several other brothers and sisters I cannot name, being small when I left them. I was brought away from my people by old man Waumack and his son in-law. The old man sent me down to Richmond, and there I was sold to a negro trader for $835, brought from Virginia to Alabama, and from there to Texas by a Mr. Mobley. Address me at Butler, Texas. PEYTON WAUMACK.
