Trip to family cemetery well worth the wait - Richmond Daily News

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
The 1881 Ray County History book told about the original Pettus who settled in Ray County. “JOSEPH PETTUS. Was born in the state of Virginia. When still a small boy, his parents removed to Lincoln County, Kentucky, and here Joseph grew up, working on his father’s farm. He was married in the month of October, 1829, to Miss Mary Ann Hamilton, daughter of Thomas Hamilton, Esq., now deceased. They became the parents of sixteen children, ten sons and six daughters, fourteen of them, nine sons and five daughters, still survive. In October, 1833, Mr. Pettus left Kentucky and came to Ray County, Missouri, settling one and a half miles southeast of Elkhorn, in the then almost unbroken wilderness, where he had entered three hundred and sixty acres of land. He afterward bought eighty acres more, making in all four hundred and forty acres of rich land. Here he lived until the time of his death, 1857. He was occupied with his business, and took no active part in politics. In religion, both himself and his wife were what have been termed Kellyites. Mr. Pettus’ remains were interred upon his farm. He was successful with his business, because he was industrious and economical. All that he acquired of wealth he made by his own indomitable pluck, perseverance, and unremitting labor. His efforts were accredited their due measure of approbation, and he was greatly respected by his neighbors.”There are many other members of the Pettus family buried here along with several other family names. I have not pieced it all together yet, so we don’t know if they are all related or if the Pettus family was just nice enough to let their neighbors be buried there, too.After a little more research, I found Walter Hamilton Pettus and Sarah E. Pettus who were buried there, but were not listed on the cemetery records. When I looked up their death certificates, their place of burial simply said, “Our Home place” for Sarah and “On Family Farm” for Walter.I found their obituaries in the old newspapers and confirmed they were buried at the Pettus Cemetery.The Richmond Missourian had this report on Aug 14, 1930: “W.H. Pettus, 95, a native of Ray County, passed away at his home near Orrick at 11:15 last night after a long illness. He was born May 18, 1835 at the Pettus homestead near Elkhorn, the son of Joseph and Mary Hamilton Pettus. The father a native of Virginia, entered the tract of 440 acres in 1833. W.H. Pettus’ early life was spent on the farm, and he continued his agriculture pursuit throughout his life. He was united in marriage with Sally Vaughn of Ray County in 1867. One child born to their union, died at the age of eight months. Mr. Pettus is survived by a brother, Marion Pettus of Richmond, and a sister, Mrs. W.N. Meredith of Nashville, Tenn. He was a member of the Richmond lodge No. 57, A.F.& A.M. and was active in the lodge earlier in life. Funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock from the home north east of Orrick. Burial will be in...

Donald F. Smith, Champion of Cabaret, Dies at 79 - New York Times

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
The convention originated at Town Hall in Manhattan with sprawling concerts that could last up to five hours. It later moved to the Rose Theater of Jazz at Lincoln Center. It also expanded to other cities. There have been three conventions in Chicago and one each in Philadelphia, London and Palm Springs, Calif.; three others have been held in East Hampton, N.Y.. Plans have been made for the New York convention to continue under the artistic direction of the singer KT Sullivan. Mr. Smith was born in New Bedford, Mass., on Oct. 7, 1932. After serving in the Army during the Korean War, he moved to New York City in 1955 and worked at the Abercrombie & Fitch and B. Altman stores. While in New York he became friends with a number of stars, including Margot Fonteyn and Ms. Mercer, and offered his services as a publicist and promoter. In 1980, after Mr. Smith had spent five years trying to persuade the Algonquin Hotel to bring back its long-dormant Oak Room, the club reopened with Steve Ross, a protégé of Mr. Smith’s, performing on an upright piano with a single spotlight. The upright was soon replaced by a grand piano, and cabaret remained a fixture at the Oak Room through the end of last year. (The hotel, which has been closed for renovations since January and plans to reopen in May, announced last month that it was discontinuing its cabaret.) Mr. Smith’s tastes were elegant and traditional. He nurtured a stable of performers including Michael Feinstein, who played his first major New York engagement at the Oak Room, as well as the nightclub star Julie Wilson and the singer and actress Andrea Marcovicci. He produced c...

The museum for black America: a force for unity – or division? - The Independent

Fri, Feb 24, 2012
I have a Dream" speech, an African American museum is finally about to rise in the heart of Washington. The National Mall, stretching from the US Capitol to the steps of the white marble Lincoln Memorial where King spoke in 1963, is perhaps the capital city's most special place, a two-mile vista lined by monuments to the country's greatest leaders and heroes, and by wonderful museums celebrating America's history and achievements. But there have been some notable omissions. Last year one was corrected with the dedication of a memorial to King – even though the event has been somewhat marred by a controversy over the inscript...

Kay Davis, 91 Dies; Ellington Used Her Voice as Instrument

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
She was a classically trained coloratura,” Phil Schaap, curator of Jazz at Lincoln Center, said in an interview on Tuesday, noting that Ellington had used “the high-register female voice as instrumental color” in the middle and late 1920s. Among the best-known wordless works was “Creole Love Call,” sung by Adelaide Hall in 1927. “With Kay Davis, he returned to this practice,” including revisiting “Creole Love Call” in 1944, Mr. Schaap said. “And he took a work that featured the trombone, ‘Blue Light,’ renamed it ‘Transblucency,’ and blended trombone with her highest-notes coloratura voice.” While “Transblucency” may be her signature piece in the genre, Ms. Davis recorded several other noteworthy wordless vocals — many accompanied by the renowned trombonist Lawrence Brown — including “Violet Blue,” “Minnehaha” and “On a Turquoise Cloud.” Kay Davis was born Kathryn McDonald in Evanston, Ill., on Dec. 5, 1920, one of three children of Samuel and Katherine McDonald. “As early as the age of 10 I knew I wanted to sing professionally,” she said in a 2001 interview with Northwestern...

Heart & Soul: the hyphenated culture of African-American Native-Americans - Open Democracy

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
New Orleans founded below sea level, on a practical joke perpetrated by scorned women.  Indian women, whom he had first ignored on Mardi Gras Day. Fast-forward some century and a half.  Abraham Lincoln has issued his Emancipation Proclamation, and in doing so has declared the end of slavery.  Knowing that it could be years, or quite possibly never, before the Union troops arrived in New Orleans to enforce the law, thousands of slaves fled from their masters to hide in the swamps surrounding the city. These swamps were inhabited by the same, ever-friendly Indian tribes who had remained happily ensconced on the land even after the arrival of French, then Spanish, then American settlers.  The tribes were more than happy to take in the runaway slaves, help them house and feed themselves, and integrate them into the daily lives of their own people. Jim Gabour invites you to visit his Carnival marching krewe, La société du saint Anne. Jim's New Orleans novel Unimportant People is available via Kindle. And this is where one theory, and the one I feel most likely, originates about the origins of the Mardi Gras Indians.  Because, when a few years later these same slaves re-entered the Union-occupied city that they had once called home, the only form of democracy under which they had personally lived was that of the loose governance of the Indian tribes.  Thus they formed their own gangs/tribes, and consolidated their neighborhoods, rallying around central focal points like bars or grocery stores, as their core. And annually they celebrated their tribe’s survival by costuming, and masking, and fighting each other for territorial expansion, on the one day a year that African-Americans were allowed to wear a mask of any sort:  Mardi Gras Day. Many of the tribes started in Treme, America’s oldest African-American neighborhood. The area received its namesake from one Claude Treme, a model hat maker and real estate developer who migrated from Saugivny in Burgundy, France, and settled in New Orleans in 1783. Treme owned only a small portion of the area that bore his name and was in possession of that for just a decade. But in the 1800s, free persons of color (“gens de couleur”) and eventually those African slaves who either obtained, bought or bargained for their freedom were able to acquire and own property in Treme.  And then in the late 1860s came the freed slaves, and the Indians.  There are hundreds of examples of 18th and early 19th century ownership of large and small land areas in Faubourg Treme by free people of color. The ability to acquire, purchase and own real property during an era when America was still immersed in slavery and its aftereffects was remarkable, and only in New Orleans did this occur with any regularity and consistency. By the late nineteenth century these neighborhoods were flooded with tribes of “Indians”, specifically African-American Native Americans, again all running on the same day between bars, in an annual ritual to establish dominance and territory. Another century passes.  The violence, the carrying of weapons and annual Ash Wednesday Indian mortality lists began to disappear from mid-twentieth century newspaper obituaries.  The Mardi Gras Indians, and we, have arrived at 2012.  Things are different these days.  Now the chiefs try to outdance and outdress one another.   The guns they carry are toys covered in sequins, calling back the memory of the Bad Days as forever gone. Sylvester Francis, the curator of the minuscule Backstreet Cultural Museum, is a self-appointed chronicler of the evolution of the Downtown Indian costume, or “suit”. The Indians now have a second dayt...
