Re: Negro Registries
In Response To: Re: Negro Registries ()

Barnetta-there is mention of a family in the book I picked up at the Historical Society named White. "Eulalee (Smith) White a daughter of James William Smith, born in Indiana, grew up and moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where she met and married George Howard White. To them was born two sons, William H. White and Jack Dixon White. We are very proud that our great-grandmother is buried in the Hopewell Cemetery. Many people in this county are not aware that a Black American, or should I say Black Americans, were cared for and buried in the Quaker Cemetery." This just a section of the entire article entitiled "Smith Family Tree." There are at least two Hopewell Cemeteries in Jennings County. I will have to see which one was considered the Quaker Cemetery.
