I have been unable to find information on my grandfather. He was black, I know he was born in Virginia around 1912 his mothers name was Maude Carter. He was a musician in Chicago, had a band and went by the name Bill Carey. He was an alcoholic who died in Evanston, IL 1963. Rumor has it his body was shipped to Virginia. When he passed he was seeing a woman named LIZ who's son was to escort the casket but got off the train in Indiana.
