a Black veteran of WWI -- Banks was chained to a tree and set on fire. The motivation was said to be his money or possible involvement with white women.
A pillar in the African-American community, Banks helped bring electricity to the town of Marion in the 1920s and became one of the wealthiest black landowners.
His parents were James Wesley Banks and Anna Butler Banks (supplied by granddaughter - Marcelina Williams).
(update 2-2011) the FBI has reopened the case, and the land Isadore owned has been found, the crime is still under investigation, and hopefully justice will be served.
