      I found a book entitled "Okefinokee Album" by Francis Harper and Delma E. Presley in some of my grandmother's belongings. There is an inscription on the inside written by her sister-in-law (Bernice) hoping she "enjoys reading about the Chessers.".   There was one book in particular, The Okefinokee Album by Francis Harper & Delma Presley, that really interested me. This book was full of stories about the original swamper families who called the Okefenokee home; and in addition to the stories, Harper wrote about, there were plenty of photographs of these people and their way of life.
