Bio and Links
Bio Photo Atlanta, Georgia native saluting the contributions of known and unknown individuals, pacifically the fundamental role that African American's have played in the making of the American republic. Many of these known and unknown individuals broke barriers in the political, educational and entertainment arenas, as well as built up their communities, and achieved beyond what others deemed impossible. All saluted, from the famous to the obscure, deserve our gratitude, for their lives clearly demonstrate in some way-through perseverance, fortitude and hard work that people can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fulfill their dreams and share their gifts with the world. Over the recent years I have learned and made some exciting discoveries about my ancestors. Find A Grave provides all of us a opportunity to learn about some of these individuals behind the struggles and triumphs that have helped shape the world in which we live. My hope is that more people will become more aware of the contributions that many of these individuals have made.

A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.

Thank you to everyone who have left tokens and kind words of rememberance for my memorials, especially my loved ones. Also, a special thank you to those who have sponsored memorials of my deceased relatives. God Bless!

Rest in God
Thank You
Your visit to Martin McGuinness is deeply appreciated. Tonight the City of Derry came together in a prayer vigil with music and remembrance in typical old Irish Wake tradition. Martin would be honoured to be remembered so prayerfully.

RE: Corin Hensley
When looking, I thought it might be too soon to have a grave stone installed. I suggest you make a fresh request in 2-3 months, or after you have confirmed placement.

Memorial Park in Memphis
Hello,

Earlier this year you requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Lee Julian Purnell
Whipple Purnell

Lee, the Son of Whipple was a prominent engineer in the Oakland Bay Area, CA. His father (Whipple Purnell) was one of the first African American Physicians in the Oalkand, CA area.

Lee is on Find A Grave.

I loved reading Lena's memorial. She was blessed with 104 years! Not many people can say their loved one was around that long. I'll have to ask her a few questions when I get to where I'm going :)

Merry Christmas!
