Photo Reveals Our Ancestor’s Religious Devotion

During a book signing in Evansville in February I met a cousin Mildred Moore Robinson who gave me this wonderful photo that belonged to her mother.  The photograph was of an 1890s baptism in Cedar Hill, Tennessee.   The church was a central part of the African American community.   People would come from miles around to witness a baptism as shown in this photo.
