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!

Treasure Chest Thursday Toddler's Jumper

This little toddler's outfit was worn by Garnet Talbott, son of Bossy and Esther Lee Talbott. The outfit is not in the best of conditions, but my great-grandmother's sewing skills are still clearly evident. Below you can see the detail of the stitching and the button holes.


Garnet R Talbott was the fourth child born to Bossy and Esther. He was born on 28 Jul 1922 and died 13 Feb 1924 during of influenza. It is nice to have something from his short life.
