Wordless Wednesday: Essie

Charlotte Estrella "Essie" Mott Lies

I thought it was about time I put a face to the memoirist.  
I have no idea when this picture was taken but I think she looks about fifty, so I'm guessing around 1885.


  1. Lovely photo! I wish I had some photos from that time period in my family.

  2. Wonderful photo! So enjoy reading your blog. I have nominated you for "The Lovely Blog Award". If you wish to pick up go to

    Looking forward to following you as you post more discoveries.


  3. New to your blog....I have worked on Mott lines within my husband's tree....I have to go back to read your previous pieces on that surname. She is lovely.

  4. Congratulation on your blog! I have nominated you for the "One Lovely Blog Award"! If you wish to follow up go to

    Great work. Now you can have two nominations!
