Jefferson Brown

Here’s a photo of Jefferson Brown.

This photo is courtesy of his grand-daughter Francine. She said that he is all dressed up because it is his parents’s 50th wedding anniversary!  His mother, Zola Tolbert Brown, was an exquisite seamstress in an exclusive dress shop in New York City, and she made all the clothes in the wedding party.


Everyone looks so beautiful! Elegant!

Francine said this was made at Bethel AME Church in New York City, but no one in the family is clear about the date. At any rate, Zola’s husband Winnie Joe Brown died the year after the anniversary, but we don’t have the date of his death either. I’ve reached out to several total strangers on the Internet, because someone somewhere has got to know some answers, but no luck yet.

I do love a puzzle!
