Catherine Robinson (formerly Catherine Roberts) searching for her daughter Harriett Roberts

DEAR EDITOR—I wish to inquire for my daughter. Her name was Harriett Roberts. She belonged to Rev. Lewis Roberts, who lived on Wolf River, 25 miles from Memphis, Tenn. My husband was named Isaac Roberts. I was sold to the Chickasaw Indians. They were then moving to Arkansas. At the time they bought me, when I left my daughter, she was only 5 years old. It has been near 35 or 40 years since I last heard from her, and the only child living. My name was Catherine Roberts. I have married since—my name is now Catherine Robinson. Address me at Waco, McLennen Co., Texas, care of Rev. B. F. Smith. CATHERINE ROBINSON.
