* Mary Alice Lasaine was born to be an educator. At a very young age she saw the value in educating others. The 1900 census reports that she was teaching at the young age of 17. Her first professional teaching position was at Penn School on St. Helena Island in Beaufort, South Carolina. St. Helena is the center of African-American Gullah culture and language.

After a few years at Penn she was offered the position of supervisor of Gloucester County Schools in Virginia. It is believed that she meet Thomas LaSaine Sr during this period.

They married and she moved back to Weldon, NC were she began teaching at Roanoke Rapids which neighbors her hometown.

Soon after, Thomas Jr and Herman were born and the LaSaines moved to Charleston, South Carolina were Mary took on a teaching position at Shaw School. A law was soon passed that married couples couldn't teach so Mary Alice relinquished her work at Shaw and shortly after was aointed the First Superintendent of South Carolina Negro Schools.

Murray-LaSaine Elementary School was named after herself and her neighbor and friend Albertha Johnston Murray who was an educator in Charleston at the time.

37 According to my mother, her mother, Willie Anna said she moved from Crowley, LA to live with various relatives for about 15 or so years. She believed she was the black sheep of the family and wasn't treated very well by Josephine. Rumor has it that she may have gotten pregnant but lost the baby. She primarily did cleaning for private families and families she lived with most of her life.

Tired of feeling that her life was going no where, she decided it was time for a change. She wanted to prove to herself and family that she could be a wonderful, productive person. Willie Anna moved to Kansas City, Missouri to attend Medical School in 1930... she later left and went to Nashville to go to Medical school there. She later met Professor Thomas A. LaSaine Jr while she was attending MeHarry Medical as a student. They married and produced Mary F. LaSaine. She later became Head Nurse at Meharry Medical, proving that she could be someone special and important. - R. Finley Sr. 08-12-2007

46 Birthdate was already known via the family however:
the 1920 census data of Crowley Louisian confirms it.

Census Data for 1920 in Crowley City, Acadia County, Louisiana states that Willie Anna was 9 when census was taken. Which matches her known D.O.B. perfectly. This census also confirms that there were other missing family members from the Obituary for Willie Anna. They are now all added to the tree.
