Hello! Welcome to Dearest Esther. This is where I will share the letters and postcards of my great grandmother Esther Lee Richardson Talbott. While formal records tell of Esther's birth, marriage, death, etc, her letters tell us the details not found in the records. This unique set of letters tells her story and the story of those around her better than I could. These letters tell of her community and are rich in the daily life details family historians love.
I hope you enjoy reading Esther's letters. If you find your ancestor mentioned, please leave a comment or contact me at LissonGenealogy[at]yahoo.com.
