For those of you that aren’t familiar with the murder on Marshell Ave. back in 1901, just click HERE.

For those of you who already know about it, this is the death certificate of the victim, Charles Franklin.

I think one of the interesting things — in addition to the fact they weren’t quite sure of his age — is the “Color” designation. Not only isn’t that term used any longer, Indian would only be used for someone from India now, African American and Caucasian are the terms used today instead of black and white, and hispanic isn’t even an option.
