Negro League Surname Update
In Response To: Re: Negro League Surname Update ()
Hi Art. The first two names appear in a 19th century news clip about Black-owned teams which appears in David Wiggins' sports encyclopedia 'The Unlevel Playing Field'. Your library may have a copy:
The Embry reference is from Wayne Embry, who told me that his father was a ballplayer on some level- though this may trace back to their Southern past.
Another player from your hometown, probably 1930's, was a Stanley "Wen" White.
