A Rare Photo

This is one of the few photographs of Elton Carr with her first husband Beverly Dixon. In her journal, Elton wrote the the date she met Beverly (August 1930) and his address on Leigh St in South Boston, VA. Beverly was born about 1914 to Nathaniel Dixon of Halifax County, VA. I have yet to find the date that Beverly and Elton married.  Unfortunately their marriage was cut short when Beverly was killed in a car accident soon after they married.  The above photo was taken at the Pheobe Ann Community House on Mountain Road outside of South Boston, VA.

Haley and Carr Cousins:  If you have memories of Elton and Beverly, please share.
