Shropshire, 51, clasps his daughter's hand and begins leading her into the Northwest Georgia forest.
"This is where your ancestors are buried, back here," Shropshire says. "C'mon, I'll show you."
And with a loving tug, Duncan Shropshire shares with his daughter a key piece of their family's history.
"Those are rows of graves. They're stacked like spoons here," Shropshire says. "There was a lot of people here. People of the 1800s are buried here. And I'm trying to keep it in your memory...
"They started in the early 1800s, baby," Shropshire answers. "They worked our people to death here. They were slaves. And probably about 1905 is when they stopped burying in this area. Your great-great-great grandfather, a (slave-owning) man named Wesley, he had five children by this slave woman, your great-great-great grandmother. She is buried over here on this side. Her name is Molly."
