225 A 22 year old Washington Vails appears on the 1870 census in Perry, Alabama. He's listed as Mulatto and living with a mulatto Fannie Vails. Another Vails is two houses over married to an Alice Vails with one child Washington(5). That repetition of the Washington name among the Vails leads me to think that there is some family importance to the name. Further research is needed. - Reginald V. Finley Sr. - 09-07-2007

The 1880 Census. It appears that Washington Jr. was born earlier than they remembered on the 1910 Census. This is the family however, as the marriage certificate said they were married in Yazoo, and that's exactly where this 1880 census was taken. - Reginald V. Finley Sr. - 09-07-2007.

243 According to Hazel Stewart Murray, she has fond memories of Thomas coming over to Fisk University to play bridge. He was an exceptional player and even competed in tournaments.
The Spring 2003 Johnson C. Smith University Newsletter mentions that Dr. Thomas Alonzo LaSaine was a professor at Meharry Medical College and also attended JCSU.

TEXT of it:

He and his wife, Loretta, met at
Meharry Medical College and were married
in 1959. They share fond memories of
friends they knew from JCSU. Both of them
enjoyed a professor at Meharry, Dr. Thomas
LaSaine, who attended JCSU with Dr.
Webber's father.
Biography of Thomas Alonzo LaSaine, Jr.
I discovered a 2003 newsletter from the Johnson C. Smith University website where I read an entry in which a Loretta and Spurgeon Webber discussed Alonzo Thomas Jr. It really seems that by GrandDad made an impact on Jean. I called Spurgeon Webber's Dental Office about a week ago. Jean contacted me back. I thought Spurgeon was a student as well. Jean says her husband didn't attend his class. Jean spends some time with us to talk about my grandfather, Thomas Alonzo LaSaine Jr.

I hope you enjoy this interview.

Obituary and News Item
Bettye Odom was another student of Dr. Thomas A. LaSaine. She reflects on the memory of him. Visit her site: http://www.bettyeodayspa.com 
LaSaine, Dr. Thomas Alonzo Jr (P23)
 
244 According to living folks that still live in the Krackie Street neighborhood. Mary Alice had 2 best friends: Emilie Albertha and Mildred Brown.
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 appointed 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.
http://murraylasaine.ccsdschools.com/home.aspx

Under her leadership, great improvements occurred within South Carolina's black schools. The county district was reorganized, schools were consolidated and transportation facilities were created to transport children to and from school.

Dr. Mary Alice LaSaine later received an honorary Doctorate of Humanities degree from Allen University.

Dr. Mary Alice Lasaine died in 1957 and was buried in Morris Brown Cemetery on the corner of Huguenin Ave & Algonquin Rd in Myers, South Carolina, north of Charleston.

Her headstone reads, "THE END AND THE REWARD OF TOIL IS REST".

- Reginald Vaughn Finley Sr - 09-23-2007
After talking to locals that still lived off Krackie Street (where Mary Alice and Thomas LaSaine lived) we discovered that Mary Alice's grave was probably located at Morris Brown Cemetery. Ms. Singleton and Mrs. Murray Stewart told us it may be there but to check with the Morris Brown church first. After dealing with a very rude church secretary, a Ms. Billiard, (even though she said she couldn't help us at least 8 times) she actually lead us to the general area of where the Cemetery was. After about 30 minutes of searching. We found her! We were very lucky because, after about 28 minutes. I decided to run down to the corner of Huguenin and Algonquin to get a better view. There she was! Her actual grave location is here. DR. M. ALICE LASAINE BURIAL SITE. About 20 marker poles west from the corner of Algonquin and Huguenin.

The headstone reads:
LaSaine
DR. M.Alice Person

"THE END AND THE REWARD OF TOIL IS REST"
Charleston Evening Post article about Dr. Mary Alice Person Lasaine:

Keywords: Evelyn B. Hayes, Morris Brown Church
On October 16, 2006. The Lasaine family traveled to Charleston, SC to discover what happened to Mary Alice LaSaine.
Hazel Murray Stewart is the daughter of Emilie Albertha Johnston Murray. Emilie has a school named after her and her best friend, Mary Alice LaSaine. That school is called, "Murray-LaSaine" elementary located in Charleston, South Carolina off Riverland Dr.

Hazel recalls what she can about the LaSaine Family. - R. Finley Sr.
Mary F.Lasaine Finley and her son Reginald Finley Sr took a trip to Charleston, South Carolina. We found Mary Aice Lasaine's old house off an "umarked" Kracke Street. We spoke to some locals (Mr. Butler, Singleton) that actually remembered Mary Alice Lasaine. I was given permission by the current home renter to take a pic of the home.


Local Residents remember that Ms. Murray was her neighbor and good friend. Many educators lived on Krackie Street. A Principal, Mr. Jenkins, lived across the street from Mary Alice and Thomas. A Library opened up called, "Darts Hall" next to the principals house.

The Kracke street house caught fire and that fire claimed two lives. John Thomas' sister and another unnamed person so the neighbor's say. Thomas Alonzo Sr worked on repairing the house for the next 6 months. The LaSaines lived next door with Emilie Murray until the house was repaired.
Excerpt from Profiles of African-American Females in the Low Country of South Carolina - Lois Averetta Simms.
The Executive Committee Palmetto State Teachers' Association
South Carolina's "The Post and Courier" did a story concerning naming schools after community leaders. The article mentioned Murray-LaSaine as the lead part of the story. -
Online version
This response was in reference to an earlier article posted about the significance of naming schools after famous civic activists.

249 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
