Are You My Cousin?: A Rare Photo

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

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.
