Sandra's first trip in years to Georgia

Sandersville, GA

Sandra Welsh (nee Rawlings), "Uncle" Herman, and Kwame Welsh traveled to Sandersville, GA, to meet her aunt Audrey Rawlings, and cousin James Rawlings. We also met Chappell Davis and three of her sons.

We shared tons of pictures. We saw photos of Sandra's grandparents Wilson R. and Rosa "Rosie" Rawlings; her sister Julia Mae Rawlings Trimble; her aunts and uncles, as well as some cousins.

We then visited the family plot at Robin Springs Baptist Church on Deepstep Road, near the family's old farm.
