Washington, as President of Tuskegee Institute. Signed on the ffep to Rev. William Byrd Lee an Episcopal Rector in various Virginia Parishes who was well-known for his work with African-Americans in the area. Interestingly one of his obituaries reads, "Among the out-of-county clergymen present was the venerable Rev. Giles B. Cook, of Mathews, last survivor of General Robert E. Lee's staff. Negro spirituals were sung at the grave by a group of members of the negro churches of the county, a fitting tribute to one of their staunchest friends." Interesting association with Moton.
