This last weekend hubby and I hit the Ramona Flea market in Jacksonville. I found an old photo album full of photos. It wasn't until I got home and really examined it and spent some time on Google did I discover just how important this family photo album could be.
I am not sure which family member owned the album or how it ever got separated from family members, but I hope to find some living descendants.
Does the name Rev. Archibald Carey, Sr. or his son Rev. Archibald Carey, Jr ring any bells? How about Rev. Shelton Hale Bishop? Honestly, I never heard of them before, but I am learning all about them now.
Rev. Bishop was the fifth rector of Lafargue Clinic in 1946. It was housed It was he first mental health clinic in the world to serve people of color. It operated from the end of WWII until the 1960s when Elizabeth Bishop Davis, MD, a volunteer at the clinic and daughter of Rev. Shelton Bishop, became the first Chief of Psychiatry at Harlem Hospital.
Rev. Bishop was married to the sister of Rev. Archibald Carey. After today I will post one page at a time and share what I have learned about this family.
