Curtis, Please add this at the End of the Bio for
Mahalia Jackson

The United States Postal Service added Commemorative recognition of her Legacy to the "Legends of American Music, Gospel Singers"
on July 15, 1998
Mahalia Jackson, 32 Stamp

I've added a sample of the stamp in her floral tribute. :-)

Memorial for James Forten, Sr.
Mr. Jackson: Part of the memorial you created says, "During Forten's life time he spent over half of his $300.00 fortune to finance different crusades for abolitionists'...". I'm wondering if "$300.00" should've read "$300,000"? Overall great bio. Thanks for the historical insight.

RE: Corin Hensley
When looking, I thought it might be too soon to have a grave stone installed. I suggest you make a fresh request in 2-3 months, or after you have confirmed placement.

Renaldo Browne
Historic African Americans
Mr. Jackson,

A couple of names you may be able to add to African American History.

Lee Julian Purnell
Whipple Purnell

Lee, the Son of Whipple was a prominent engineer in the Oakland Bay Area, CA. His father (Whipple Purnell) was one of the first African American Physicians in the Oalkand, CA area.

Lee is on Find A Grave.

I loved reading Lena's memorial. She was blessed with 104 years! Not many people can say their loved one was around that long. I'll have to ask her a few questions when I get to where I'm going :)

Merry Christmas!

Greetings My Brother, Again another giant in the gospel field has transitioned. Hope you have the time and opportunity to give him a proper Memorial Bio. At this moment words fail me and I am too close to the situation to attempt the task. Willie "Joe Ligon" would appreciate your touch. Take Care.
