Friend of Friends Friday

I have decided to move my weekly "Friend of Friends Friday" series from my other blog Ancestors Live Here to this one. The posts of late have been newspaper articles so I thought it would fit better over here.

This first article is from the Weekly Wisconsin, September 6, 1848, page 5.

The next article is from Burlington Weekly Hawkeye, published in Burlington, Iowa, April 11, 1863, page 6. 

Clicking on the image will make it larger and easier to read.

The slaves mentioned are:
  1. Joseph Brooking
  2. George Runley, alias George Merritt
  3. Jewell
  4. Jo Miner
