familyportraits



Illustration and creation by ms. Lisa C. Jackson

The Adults in the pool picture are (L-R); my brother Alfred II (Nick), Olear (Haslerig) Jones (my neice), and at the top of the ladder, her brother George Haslerig Jr. The two children in front of Olear most likely are her twin sons, Michael (now deceased-a story in itself) and Wendell, born in November 1956. They look to be 2 - 3 yrs old in the picture which would date the time as the summer of 1959 (or maybe 1960). Olear also has a daughter (alberta, aka Kitten) born in 1958, but I doubt she is in the picture. Shawn can maybe identify Nicks children in the picture, but my guess is that his son Nicky III is walking up behind George (Baby Brother), John (Marty) is standing in front of Nick, and Shawn is in front of George. The two girls may very well be Georges's daughters. Chattanooga had only one park with a swimming pool to accommodate all of the blacks in the city. There was also a facility within a state park (Booker T. Washington State Park) that had a swimming/boating

By GWK: Aunt Pearl (Wright) Arnold (b 1908) was Mary Louise Lawson King's maternal aunt, the eldest sister of Hattie Wright Lawson. Hubert Lawson and Hattie Wright lived happily in Chattanooga until Hattie died in childbirth when Minerva was born in 1935. Hubert never fully recovered from her death. Aunt Pearl eventually became responsible for the three sisters and two brothers, raising them like they were her own. They moved to Aunt Pearls home at 2512 Long St where Louise and I were married 14 years later. Aunt Pearl died in the late 1980’s (date is available.)

Outside the main King family residence at 2301 12th Ave in Chattanooga, TN. There is a companion picture showing my sister, Jean Bellinger of Indianapolis, holding her recently born first child, Edmond Brown. The picture was probably taken by Jean's late husband Emmett Brown, in 1950 when they came to present the grandchild to Mom and Pop.Pop married Mom in about 1908 when Pop graduated and left Fisk to begin teaching in Soddy, Tenn. (near Chattanooga). Soon afterwards he moved his teaching career to Chattanooga, which became the family home for the remainder of his life. In addition to being an educator, he was also a politician and a small business owner. He was highly respected throughout the community and the surrounding areas. He was a greatly devoted family man, and was responsible for all but one of his seven children receiving a college degree. Incidentally, this was at a time when most Black children seldom got
