God works in mysterious ways! I have always wondered why my father had such a love of the deep South, particularly Georgia I grew up hearing the songs of Steven Foster. On my left shoulder is “Swing low, Sweet Chariot”. I longed to visit the deep South and started several years ago. I have a deep love of Southern Folk Art. I took my grandson Brandon to the South when he turned 13.—Please listen to this—I just joined the Graves Family Association. I just learned that my roots go back to Georgia and the 1700s, My family has actually been traced back!—And I know through Ancestry.com DNA testing that I am .01 percent African.—-Isn’t it amazing!
The love of the Deep South has been in our veins for over 300 years!–olRoff
