Thanks for the message and comments regarding Frank Jacobs. The time period that you mention in your message is 1941-49. The Frank Jacobs that you mention could not have been my grandfather, however. He died in 1939, and before his death had moved from the Huntsville area. He was not Adventist. The name Frank, or my grandfather's name name Francis, seems to have been a common name in the Jacobs family. This might well have been one of my grandfather's nephews or great-nephews. Charity is also a name that appears to have been used at various times in the family. I have been trying to construct the family genealogy, having some success. As I said in my earlier post, the entire family was consistently listed as mulatto in the census records. Some, however, claimed their descent as Indians. Any further details on the Jacobs would be much appreciated.
