|On the back: "Mrs. Coldorn"|
This is a cabinet card that was obviously trimmed haphazardly to fit into an album, I suppose.
Who were the Coldorns to my Davis family that they would have her portrait? There are no Coldorns in our family tree.
I conducted a BROAD search – no first name, no date, no state of residence. There were plenty of Coldorn families in North Carolina and West Virginia, and others as far away as Oklahoma and Minnesota. When I narrowed my search to Virginia, the spelling became Coldron, Coldiron, and Colder.
Honestly, I can’t even guess at a possible date of birth for this woman because I cannot tell if she was fairly young or just plain old in this picture.
