history, noting the Etheldred name, though giving no mention of Dred Scott or the
lawsuit (Charless, A Biographical Sketch of the Life and Character of Joseph

Despite what VanderVelde writes of her conversation with Kenneth Kaufman, the
first grave marker seems to have been unveiled September 17, 1957, the ninety-
