Naomi’s grandparents

Frances and Jesse Rawlings (Naomi’s grandparents)

When I was going through photos with my grandma, we found this replica of a portrait of her great-grandparents. Naomi’s grandmother had died giving birth to Mattie, so Mattie was raised by this couple, Frances and Jesse Rawlings. They lived on a tobacco farm in Virginia, but beyond that, Naomi doesn’t know anything about them. Still, I appreciate this glimpse into a distant past.
