DEAR EDITOR: I wish to inquire about my mother's people. She was a native of Virginia, living three miles east of Petersburg. Her name was Sallie Qualls. Her father's was Charley Qualls. Her mother mary, and her grandmothers Sarah and Della. Her sister Julia, and brother Charley. The baby was Peter. Her master was John Qualls and his brother Jesse.
