Henderson Clemmons searching for his father Ned Stephenson, mother Charlotte, and relatives

MR. EDITOR—I desire to inquire
of the whereabouts of my kin peo-
ple [people], whom I left in Wake county,
North Carolina. Father's name
was Ned Stephenson; mother's,
Charlotte; four brothers, John,
Deork, Jarrett and Henderson. We
all belonged to Bob Young, of Rol-
lia [Rollia], a little town in Wake Co, N.
C. I fell to John Young, of the
same family. John sold me to a
negro trader below Rollia. My
mother belonged to Muddy Springs
Baptist Church when I left there.
The preacher's name was George
Nance. I had two cousins, Jerry
Snerling and Wilson Sams, Jarr-
et [Jarret] and Deork were not of the same
father as John and I. Their fath-
er's [father's] name was Henry Leech. Broth-
er [Brother] Jarret fell to Miss C. Young, as
well as I can remember; it was
about the year 1835 when I was
sold. If found will confer a favor
that cannot be repaid by address-
ing [addressing] me at San Felipe, Texas, in
care of Mr. W. H. Jackson.
