I know I have been saying this for 5 years but I can't resist one last shot.
My guess is they have to be long gone by now but maybe there is a kid left

Dear Sir or Madam:
I am enclosing some copies of previous letters written to Mr. or Mrs.Grass.
Mrs. Grass spent many years of her life researching the genealogy of my family
and others in Screven and Burke Counties, Georgia.
I have seen some of her work. What little I have seen is outstanding. Mrs.
Grass did original and valuable research which cannot now be duplicated.
To, be sure some of her remaining files may appear to be assorted junk papers
but I assure you I would like very much to try to organize the remainder of
Mrs. Grass' work and present it to the Georgia Archives to be available to
future generations of researchers and historians. I'm confident that is
likely to be what Mrs. Grass would have wanted herself.
So, may I appeal to you to see if any of her papers still exist? Would you
mail them to me? If the papers have sentimental value to you I will be
pleased to return them in the original condition after photo-copying them. I
will be most pleased to reimburse you for any cost you might incur: postage,
Thanking you in advance for your needed help in this matter. I am enclosing a
self addressed stamped envelope in case you would like to reply to me as to
the best way to have Mrs. Grass' papers preserved for the Georgia Department
of Archives and History.
