Ezmirelda at the Blalock

This miniature human came to the Blalock family when the mansion was first built, the doll of 6 year old Robyn Blalock. Unfortunately this little daughter of the original family died of cholera in the early 1890s. Ezmirelda had her own room in a special area under the main floor staircase, and she remained there through the asylum years, the medical facility years, and the orphanage. When the Blalock was torn down, one of the workmen took possession of the little lady. Over the years some claimed that she brought luck, others not so much. More as additional information is learned and the workman / owner is found.
