In Jackson, Mississippi the funeral service business for African-Americans began in the late 1880’s. The business was Lyman and Harvey undertakers at the corner of Pearl and Farish Streets. Lyman came from Vicksburg, Mississippi where he had also started a funeral home. He and Jack Harvey sold their business to G. F. Frazier who operated from 406 North Farish Street beginning in 1903.
