From Donna Shackle, Journal Editor:
This issue is a treat! We have the pentultimate installment from Cary Faison on the Railroad, Hortons, and Faisons and continuations of the 1897 Raleigh Colored School census and of the Soldiers Home Record. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment we have the 1915 & 1917 membership lists from the Raleigh Equal Suffrage League. Belle Long, the former Director of the Joel Lane Museum House, has written about the identity of Colonel Theophilus Hunter's second wife, Jane. Read along to see how she discovered the identity of Jane and puts to rest a local mystery.
This issue could not have happened without the volunteers who helped to transcribe these records. Please consider volunteering to transcribe from home. If you are interested, please contact me for more information.
