Rutha Gardener searching for her father Sam Wade and her siblings

MR. EDITOR—I wish to inquire for my people. My father's name was Sam Wade. Mother's name was Rody Soless. She used to keep the ferry at Burton's Ferry, where she was drowned. There were seven children when I was taken away—Charles, Malinda, Rutha, Abram, Samuel, Letty and John. Charles, Malinda, and Rutha were brought to middle Tennessee by Samuel Shell and his brother. I was quite small when taken away—between six and seven years old. We all lived in Virginia. Please address me at Juno, Henderson Co, Tenn. RUTHA GARDENER
