Lost Friends
Mr. Editor - I want to inquire for my relatives whom I last saw in
Marion District, South Carolina. We belonged to a widow, named Mrs.
Patsey BASS, who was blind. My father was named Prince, and my mother
Cloe BASS. In our family there were eight children, three boys and five
girls; their names were Dandy and Lucy, who belonged to Bryant BASS,
Caesar, who belonged to John BASS, and came with him from South Carolina
to Louisville, Ala., Luke, I do not remember who he belonged to, he died
in South Carolina; Sarah, who belonged to Nancy COX; Mariam belonged to
a man by the name of HAMPTON; Amanda was given to Miss Priscilla MOODY,
and the last we heard of her she was in Clark county, Miss. I am the
8th one, and my name is Clarissay; I was given to a man named Ebenezer
TATE, who bought my father from Mr. Joe BASS, and MR. TATE brought us
from South Carolina to Green county, Miss. My father died in 1865;
mother died in South Carolina when I was quite young. I am the youngest
of all. I was sold to a man named GRIFFIN. I am married now and live
in Perry county, Mississippi, Griffin P. O. Any information will oblige
Andrew GRIFFIN or Mrs. Clarissay ANDREWS. Address as above.
