"Favorite Photograph" - Molsie Jane Talbirt (Talbert) Litaker

Molsie Jane Talbirt (a.k.a., Talbert) Litaker - circa 1900

Like most genealogists, I can't say that I have one favorite photograph.  However, this one of my maternal second great-grandmother definitely ranks in my top ten.

The main reasons I treasure this particular photograph are:
  • My great-grandmother, Faye Elizabeth Litaker, gave me the original tintype picture in its original frame.  That makes it special to me because it was a gift from her and because she trusted me to preserve a special photo of her mother.
  • This photo is the only existing one of Molsie of which I am currently aware.

About Molsie

Molsie was born on 09 March 1875 in Kershaw County, South Carolina, to Reverend William Thomas Talbirt (1840-1913) and Mary Ann Elizabeth West Talbirt (1843-1927).  She married George Franklin Litaker, Sr. (1868-1939) in Concord, Cabarrus, North Carolina, on 07 July 1897.  George and Molsie had six children of their own, five of whom lived past infancy.  They also raised the three living daughters from George's first married to Carrie White Dove.  Molsie passed away on 19 March 1939 in Concord and is buried in Center United Methodist Cemetery.
