Friend of Friends Friday -- Runaway Slave Ads

So I finally got a NewspaperARCHIVE subscription, though limited it will serve it's purpose, or shall I say purposes. I have stumbled on to some slave information that I think falls under the 'Friend of Friends' category.

These are newspaper ads from The Torch Light And Public Advertiser, published in Hagers-town, Maryland 1825-10-25, page 3.

The named slaves are: Lewis, Joe, Levi, Charles, and Isaac.
