The hankie was used by someone famous? happy WW.
Yes, someone famous.....specifics please. :)
tegdirb92 guessed mine.
How about a US President's wife?
Was that hanky used at someone's wedding?
My guess would be that the hanky belonged to someone special, perhaps a beloved relative that has passed on... or like the above guesses that it was someone famous, lol.Peace to you and yours.
Some one famous? Or maybe a dear relative?? Mine is up at Being An Air Force Wife
No wife....no relative....no president used this hanky. The person who did use it is famous in history, but is not commonly known.The person's story is so integral to different events in history that I am almost giddy with glee at the prospect of sharing HIM with you. One more hint.....I discovered him on my trip to Mississippi.
I'm guessing it wiped the tears of a dying president's soon-to-be widow.
Okay - I took my first guess in an attempt to be honest in guessing without being swayed by what other's were guessing. Now I guess it belonged to Martin Luther King.
Did the handkerchief belong to Elvis Presley? No... he's well-known... Hmm, Mississippi... how about Tennessee Williams? B.B. King? (My husband's a guitarist, haha). I suppose my best guess is the handkerchief belong to Tenn. Williams. Or wait, maybe Evers, a Civil Rights leader. He was shot. Maybe the stain is his blood?I like your quizzes. :) Ask some New York ones. ;)
Hi Mrs. Mecomber! I'll try to post some NY Wednesdays soon. Your guesses are great but no Civil Rights leaders and no rock/pop stars.Here's another hint....think before the Civil War.
It's not a hanky. It's an Arabic headdress. Commonly called a Kaifia (I don't know if I spelled that right.)I have one at home - same design. I gave one to my dad as well (his is black and white).
Good guess, Eric. The story I was told is this person's wife made the hanky for him before 1840. I don't think they had ever been to the Middle East. The pattern does look like the head coverings though.
I am going to guess Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain, but am not 100% sure at the moment and reserve the right to try again if I should find a more correct answer...
Ok..two more guesses before I give up the fight--I have it narrowed down to Andrew Ellicott orHaller NuttAm I even close to being right?
Twain, Ellicott, and Nutt (the owner of Longwood) are great guesses. Ms. Q, you are very, very warm!I'll try to post my explantion this evening.
