An unknown woman's photograph on his father's desk and an 1849 letter written by slave owner and buyer A. A. Pattillo, found in his deceased father's papers, led Frank Woods on a journey of discovery. His search determined that the woman in the photograph was his great-grandmother. Woods also learned the name of her mother and found proof that he is a descendant of slaves.
