Jack Robinson (formerly Jack Boils) searching for his mother Mary Boils and siblings

DEAR EDITOR— I wish to inquire
of my people. Mother’s name was
Mary Boils. Mother, sister Tena,
sister Easter, and brother Simon
belonged to Mrs. Nancy Boils, of
Monroe county, near Choctaw
Bluff, Ala. Sister Martha belonged
to Mr. Ker Riley. Sister Palsia
and brother George belonged to
Mr. Jerry Cloud. I belonged to
Miss Nancy Boils, but in the year
1852 she hired me to a Mr. Burden
who lived in Mobile, Ala. My
name was Jack Boils, but I have
changed it now to Jack Robinson.
I am a class leader in the Method
ist [Methodist] church at Crawfordville, Miss
Any information will be thankfully received. Address me at Crawford-
ville [Crawfordville], Lowudes county, Miss

                                                         Jack Robinson.
