There has already been one death
for the Blind Boys of Alabama vocal group,
founding member George Scott.

Clarence Fountain, another founding member, has now died.

Each of these two men
had to retire for health reasons;
diabetes contributed to both their demises.

Jimmy Carter is now the surviving founding member.

My abject apologies to those Mudcat members/readers
who are better acquainted than I
with the Blind Boys of Alabama,
because you will have spotted my error in the opening post.

previously deceased, founding group members:
Velma Bozeman Traylor died in 1947.
George Scott died in 2005.
Ollice Thomas died in 1992.
Johnny Fields (bass vocals) was living in Henderson, North Carolina,
when he died in 2009. (Alzheimer's disease a contributing factor in death.)

Partially-sighted founding member,
J. T. Hutton, became a minister.
His ministry was in the city of Birmingham.
I find reports that he suffered from Alzheimer's.
Is he dead? I can't find his death year.

All right:
Elder J. T. Hutton has dates of 1923 - 2012.
His spouse, Margaret Hutton, 1923 - 2014.
One common headstone over both their graves in
Birmingham, Alabama's Elmwood Cemetery.

(Like pulling teeth to find this online ...
I still don't know what J. T. stands for.)

Clarence Fountain's dates are 1929 - 2018.

(Look again:
that 1923 date is for J. T. Hutton.)
