I am so sorry that Ken is gone. I never got to meet him personally, but I exchanged many emails and phone calls with him. I wrote two books, House Call to the Past and Port Call to the Future, which he put in the Whydah Museum for sale. His willingness to discuss Black Sam and Maria (my 13th great aunt) as I did my research were priceless to me. I hope to get a tribute to Ken up on my blogsite in the next couple of days. You can see it at janetelainesmith.blogspot.com.
Deepest sympathy to all of you.
