Pastor L. M. Hagood seeking the family of church member

MR. EDITOR— I herewith send a notice hunting for the kin people of a member of my church here. He was born near Lebanon Tenn., and lived on a farm not far from Lebanon. He thinks his mother's name was Caroline and that he had a twin brother. When three years of age he was sold to pay a debt. He was put in jail at the above named place. When he was starting away his mother was whipped in the dining room because she cried. When the boy cried his master whipped him also. A man named Fain, who lived at Ripley, bought him as a present for his daughter, a Mrs. Mattie Green, whose husband was a tailor. He was sold in front of the Old Tavern, in Lebanon, Tenn. If the pastors of our churches in Tennessee will read this notice from their pulpits they may be able to find out something concerning this affair and thus make this man happy. Any information or questions directed to me will receive immediate attention. —L. M. Hagood, pastor Union M. E. Church. Cincinnati, Ohio.
