That is sad that he was accused of being a rapist in the 1920 and have to endured going through 68 years of his life. He lost his family and his home. But I am glad that he was wanted and be taken cared by the hospital staff. I hope he had enjoyed living in the cottage.

Yes, black ASL has differences, especially with older people. It's basically the same but in some areas almost like a different dialect.
