From Page 72:
From February 15, 1890 until June 15, 1893, William H Jones, a negro, was postmaster. He served in a small wooden building in the 900 block on the north side of Arendell Street next to R. T. Willis' store.
When I saw this for the first time, the first thing I did was said to myself, " Say What?!" A black man, who's postmaster. Back in 1890. That takes someone with some real personality.
On a side note I am so proud of my son another "personality" who will be graduating kindergarten tomorrow. Someone told me when I was pregnant with him, that enjoy being pregnant, because that is the only time they are truly yours. That statement is so true. :)
