I was Mary Abrams, born in Rehoboth. This is where I was born in 1949. My mother’s name was Daisy Pettway and my father’s name was Otis Abrams. The Abrams store was started by my brother Johnny and my brother Otis Abrams Jr. My parents were farmers, farmed cotton, corn, peas, okra, watermelon, cucumbers. As soon as I got big enough to do something in the field, I started in the field, and went on until I was about sixteen. Then I left home, and was glad to leave to get out of the field.
