Sweetwater Forerunner, (Monroe Co. TN) September 17, 1868:
"Lost Boy---On the 3rd day of August last, my little son, thirteen years old, left my house, in Todd County, Kentucky, in company with a boy I had employed. My son is spare made, rather dark complexion, looks delicate and is named Luther. The hired boy is about sixteen years old, named William Grigsby, has red hair, freckled face and is rather heavy set. They had when they left a double-barreled shot gun and but little money. It is supposed they were trying to go to Knoxville. Any information will be thankfully received by the distressed parents."---William E. Mobley, Elkton, Kentucky.
