"In an effort to pay honor where it is due, West Palm Beach, Florida, City Manager A.E. Parker yesterday paid tribute to two laborers who served throughout the trying period of intern here as volunteer workers. W.A. Watts, he said, worked 18 hours a day making coffins, and M.W. Stark supervised the placing of bodies in coffins. These men, the manager said, held their crews together, worked unsparingly and without compensation," reported the Palm Beach Post. It is African american, oral folk lore history, in Palm Beach county, that mostly white folks got buried in coffins, after the storm of '28. Very few blacks were give such an honor as a coffin, personle identification, or family notification, for victims of the hurricane of 1928.
