Reward for Return of
Runaway Slave "Henderson"

The Daily Memphis Avalanche

Memphis, Tennessee

October 26, 1858

Note: As you can see, the advertiser wanted the notice to appear in the Holly Springs, Mississippi newspaper as well, which means that Henderson may have had some connections in that area, and thus Mr. WILLIAMS may have expected him to head that way. Did Henderson have family there? Had he come to WILLIAMS from a former Marshall County owner? We can only guess at this late date, but it is another tiny piece of the picture!
