The death of Jackson Barnett, a wealthy Native American man, in 1934 stirred controversy when a woman whose marriage to him had been voided claimed to be a custodian of his body. After much dispute with different Native American agencies and some delay, Barnett was buried at Hollywood Cemetery with a Christian funeral service.
A group of mourners gather outside a Hollywood cemetery at 720 W. Washington Boulevard for the funeral services of Jackson Barnett.
