Wedding Wednesday - Mabel GREEN and James POWELL
James was born on June 19, 1889 in Wake Forest, NC, to Calvin and Healon Powell. He died at age 36 on June 16, 1925 of acute Bright's Disease. According to his death certificate, James was a barber. This makes me wonder if he may have worked for (or with) my grandfather, who I'm told owned a barber shop.
James and Mabel made their home in Raleigh, NC on Person Street. They were the parents of five children; James Jr., Ella, Roger, Mabel, and Ruby (who was born the same year her father died).
