RAN OFF from the
Subscr iber, on the 18th
of June last,
To wit: Negro fellow CORY, very
black complexion, spare made, long
whiskers, about 2S years of age. His
wife FANNY, very black complexion,
low, well set negro, has been my cook
for several years, and the signs may be
seen on her arms from the heat of fire
this negro woman Fanny, has her daugh
ter NANNY, eight years old 7th inst.
very blsck, thin made, thin jaws, and
very long head and her second daugh
ter EMILY, 2S months old, of a more
yellow cast than either Also, her son
ARNOL, born the 17th of February
last. And the sixth is a very bright
yellow girl named AD ALINE, 21 years
old, stout and well made, with a burnt
place on the left side of her head, which
she received by falling in the fire when
an infant this girl is in the habit of
combing her black hair over this burnt
place to hide the scar she has been
brought up in my house entirely I ex
pect she will attempt to pass as a free
girl, and change her name. This girl
has a variety of good clothes but a few
days before she set off, she broke into
her mistress's. trunk and took with her
sundries of wearing apparel, she also
had a black fur hat. The whole of these
negroes carried off a variety of clothes,
even their bed and furniture. I expect
ihese negroes are lurking in Edgecombe
county, in the neighborhood of Mr.
Whitakcr's old mill, near Mrs. Benton's
cpjarter, on Fishing Creek.
ELOPED from the Subscriber, on
the 24th of March last, my man PETER
said negro was formerly the property
of Mr. James Jones, of this county. I
purchased said negro at August Court
last Peter has a wife at Dr. Vaughan's,
near Mr. Nickels' store in Scotland
Neck, where I expect said negro is lurk
ing about at this time said fellow has a
dark complexion, is stout and well made,
and about 35 or 40 years of age.
ALSO, on the 26th of May last, ran
off negro man KING, very black com
plexion, 6 feet 5 or 6 inches high, thin
visage, eyes sunk very deep in his head,
gray head and beard, about 55 years old.
I forewarn all persons from harboring,
carrying off, or concealing said negroes
under the penalty of the law. 1 will
pay the above reward for those eight
negroes, if delivered to me or secured in
Jail so that I get them again, or Twenty
Dollars each for the five oldest.
