From the Richmond Dispatch, 4/4/1863, p. 2, c. 3
NOTICE - The following NEGRO MEN left our Coal Mines, in Goochland county, a few days since, and we have reason to believe that they are making their way to Essex county, where they have lived:
DICK: Low, stout, dark complexion, aged about 21 years.
ROBERT: About 5 feet 8 inches high, jet black, small eye, rather delicate, about 20 years old.
WILLIAM: About 5 feet 4 inches high, jet black, small eye, slender, about 20 years old.
JAMES: About 5 feet 2 inches high, yellow complexion, a likely boy, about 17 years old.
SOLOMON: 4 feet 10 inches high, yellow complexion, likely, about 15 years old.
The negroes were hired by us from Mr. W H Dangerfield. We will pay a liberal reward for their apprehension and delivery to us at the Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, or to any jail where we can recover them, or either of them.
