NC African American family

I am not related to this family, but ran across this notice while researching Brazos County history, and thought it might help someone?

Dear Editor -- I desire to hear from my relatives. My mother, Mary, belonged to Jess Siler, in North Carolina. Her children were Campbell, Oliver, Lucretia, and Lucinda. We were sold by Siler to Capt. Jarrett, in Georgia, in 1831. We were sold to Thompson, who swapped my mother and three children to Judge Morton. That left me in the Thompson family until emancipation. My mother and brother Oliver and sister Lucinda were sold to a Negro trader, Harris Tharp, and I have not heard from them since. My oldest sister and I lived together until emancipation, and she is here in Texas. Motherís youngest brother was Levi Siler. Address me in Brazos County Texas, at Millican, care pastor of M.E. Church. [signed] Campbell Siler.
Southwestern Christian Advocate, 11 October 1883, p.6, col.6
