Dear readers,

Please help us keep DeadFred alive. 90% of our expenses are supported by donations averaging $5. Not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, our fundraiser would be done by the time you finish reading this. That's right, the price of a large can of soda would do it.

If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: James Emory (Nee: ) | Baltimore City MD United States | 1921-1940 | Comments: This is a 1936 portrait of James Emory, a beloved family friend, painted by artist Leonard Marion Bahr (search "Bahr") (although this is NOT a good copy of a beautiful portrait, no other image of James currently exists in photographic form). James was born c.1870's in Kentucky and his father was a former slave. When a youth, James moved to Baltimore and later became a gardener and caretaker of a home owned by James H. Riefle (search "Riefle"), who had known Emory as a childhood friend. Now Leonard was Riefle's son-in-law, who lived in this same house and where Emory had an apartment in the basement, which apartment consisted of 2 rooms with a dirt floor and a portrait of Lincoln above his bed. Emory taught Bahr gardening, how to cut grass with a scythe, and other useful skills. All of Riefle's children and grandchildren loved James Emory, who died late in his years at an unknown date. Burial unknown.
