Birth: 1856
Death: Aug. 2, 1950

Malinda was a former slave. She was the daughter of Green Calvert & Cassander Morse Calvert.

Malinda's obituary from the Princeton, Kentucky newspaper:

" Melinda Calvert, colored, passed away at the home of her daughter,
Mary and Jim Tinsley in Crider community Thursday of last week.
"Aunt Melinda" as she was called by both white and colored friends
was about nine years old when slavery was abolished, She was owned
by the Calverts, wealthy white people during slavery. She had worked
in many white homes and found it a pleasure to work and comfort those in need.
She was the mother of two daughters who married ministers, Mary Tinsley
and Nannie Martin wife, wife of E. Martin of Madisonville, Ky. who with several
grandchildren survive.
Funeral services were held at the residence Friday P.M. by her pastor and burial
in the colored cemetery nearby was largely attended by white and colored friends
who placed many floral designs on her last place of rest."
