I was going through obits when I stumbled across a particularly interesting one. A. E. Raymond was a slave, fought in the Civil War on a steamship and became a doctor in Darrow. Excuse the cloying copy about Dr. Raymond always knowing his place. This was written in 1916.
I looked to see if I could find his grave but had no luck. I’d love to know more of Dr. Raymond’s story.
So I did a little more digging and discovered that A. E. Raymond was Agness Ernest Raymond (Agness?).
His wife was Celestine Martin. It appears that they had no children.
