Black History Month: Did You Know with Jerry Moore (p.1)


February is Black History Month, and in observance, we will be featuring a “did you know” of facts, with Huntington native, Jerry Moore.

One of the leading singers on the Bill and Gloria Gaither television series was Miss Lillie Knauls. Knauls was born on April 30, 1938 in Huntington, AR to Governor and Gladys Knauls.

He’s the great-great grandson of Samuel (Sam) Martin, who is buried in the Cherokee African American Cemetery in Huntington. Moore attended Mansfield Schools and graduated with the class of 1968.
