Virginia Abrams Kolkow Fall

My late grandmother was born Virginia Abrams, however, her biological father was Elroy “Cotton” Havins. Virginia was born in Long Beach, California, 14 July 1931. Her mother, Imer Lorene Guthrie had married her good friend Lewis Edwin Abrams just months before in order to avoid the disgrace of giving birth out of wedlock.

The date of this picture is 1998. It was taken in Grants Pass, Oregon where Virginia lived most of her life.

Thank you for reading,
