REMEMBER, EDUCATE, CELEBRATE

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

John P. Franklin, Sr.

John P. Franklin Sr.’s father, G.W., was the first African American funeral director and embalmer in Chattanooga when he established the G.W. Franklin Mortuary in 1894, when funeral homes used horse-drawn hearses and family coaches. John Sr, along with his brother, Ben Franklin and sister, Mabel Franklin Taylor succeeded G.W., operating the firm until 1952.
