Relatives of Charlie Burch visit museum again




Burch relative visits museum again today. Beverly Franks, the great great neice of Charlie Burch (the only person of 250 in the Farmer St Cemetery who has a tombstone)comes down from Atlanta to check on the Farmer Street Cemetery. She enjoyed a tour of the museum and told me more information about the family history. She came down five years ago to talk to Cynthia Rosers about the family. I had already read the research began by Helen Bowles but had not delved into the family history of the Burch and Cox families. Will keep you updated when I finish reading the large file.

I throughly enjoyed my visit to Newnan and the African American Museum.I delighted in hearing Diane telling me the history of the African Americans in Newnan and viewing the different memorbellia donated to the museum. I would like to thank Diane for being such a gracious hostess. I definitely will be returning.
