J. A. Dunigan seeking their mother Margaret and brother Bennie

DEAR EDITOR: --I wish to inquire for my people whom I left in Charleston, S. C. Left a mother and one brother, which was the baby, by the name of Bennie. My mother is named Margaret, and belonged to a man by the name of W. M. McCree, which was her name when we were taken away from her. She had six children: three boys and three girls; Charlotte, Abram, London, Phoebe and Annie, who were sold for debt to a Negro trader, who brought us to Dalton, Ga. His name was John Thornton. Then he sold me and brother London to Jim Dunigan to Newton Co., Miss. My three sisters he kept in Georgia; Phoebe, Annie and Charlotte. Address J. A, Dunigan, Toomsuba, Lauderdale Co., Miss.
