USA TODAY request: William Thompkins
Curtis -

I'm researching a story for USA TODAY on the African American soldiers in the Spanish-American war. I noticed you added a photo of William Thompkins (Medal of Honor recipient). I'm trying to get more information on Thompkins.

Would like to speak to you. Can you email me:

Thanks in advance.

RE: Ella Baker
I did a little research today, and I believe she may be at Ferncliff Cemetery. One of her biographies has a mention of this. Thank you so much!

I will call Ferncliff in the morning.

I just saw that your beautiful mother has been released from her earthly infirmities. I know this is a very sad time for you, your father and the rest of your family. Please accept my sympathy. I know you are glad she is no longer suffering, but that doesn't mean you won't miss her always. I'll put her in my new angel cemetery. Wishing you strength for the coming days and weeks.
