Cornelia Walker Bailey Obituary
Cornelia Walker Bailey was as much a part of Sapelo Island and the historic Hog Hammock community as the long and narrow seagrass and the saltwater that beats against the shores.

Bailey, the community's most prominent spokeswoman and keeper of the Georgia barrier island's African American rich heritage, died Sunday. She was 72.

Her death was confirmed by her husband, Julius Bailey.
