TOM ESCAPES TO CHEROKEES

OKLAHOMA

*Batesville News* July 11, 1839 Run away from the subscriber on the 9th inst, a Negro boy named Tom, about 22 years of age--light complexion, and is supposed to be part Indian, as his features resemble those of the Indian. He stole a small black mare pony with a star in her forehead--and is supposed to have went off with an Indian named Washington Eaton who was in the neighborhood and was missing at the same time. It is supposed they intended going to the Cherokee nation. Any person who may apprehend said boy and get him to me or place him in jail where I can get him shall be liberally rewarded. Rufus Stone New Port, Jackson County Ark
