A year after Alfred B. Xuma’s death, Madie Hall Xuma unveiled her husband’s tombstone at a solemn ceremony at Brixton cemetery. The tombstone was still there thirty years later, in an unkempt area overgrown with grass and surrounded by unmarked graves. Madie Hall Xuma decided to return to the United States in February 1963, where she lived in her hometown of Winston-Salem, North Carolina until her death on 10 September 1982. Alfred Xuma’s daughter, Elizabeth Nozipho, eventually married and moved to Swaziland, where she died of sickle-cell anemia in 1972. Her brother, Alfred Mtutuzeli, completed his medical training in Germany, settled in the United States, and became a practicing physician in Washington, DC1.
