Southpaw – a left handed person. (source)
I was sorting photographs recently and came across this photograph of Esther Richardson Talbott (left) and her friend Nannie Lee Farson Milam (right). Esther’s mother Hattie is in the center. I have seen this photograph before. I’ve even posted it on the blog before.
This time when I looked at it, I noticed something I had not before.
Esther was left handed! Who knew? Having read Esther’s handwriting in the past, I had not picked up that it was written by a lefty. Usually a left handed writer has a distinctive quality about their penmanship.
While this is not a major genealogical find, it is another interesting piece of information about my great grandmother.
The exact date of this photograph is not known but would be between 1919 and Dec 1922. Nannie Lee has a wedding band on her left ring finger. She was married in March of 1919.
Cousins, help me out.
Are there any other left handed family members? I am not aware of any on our side.
