Photo*Photograph is probably that of Laura Augustus Sturgeon. The photograph was included in the family photos of Nellie Montgomery (her daughter) & Walter Barnes Fred Sr. It was taken at "A.G.

Biographical Notes

Bio Published*At the Dime Museum I saw a very remarkable young woman of twenty-two, or thereabouts. She had arms, but they were quite useless, and her hands were shriveled and turned inwards. So she had trained her feet and toes to do almost everything which can be accomplished by hands and fingers, and I only wish that I could write as well with my fingers as she did with her toes. I happened to be in the place during an intermission in the performances, and had an opportunity of watching her without appearing to do so.

Seated on a chair, she picked up a closed desk, opened it, and took out some writing-paper. Then she took a portable inkstand out of its compartment, held it with the toes of the left foot, and with those of the right unscrewed the top as rapidly as I could do with my fingers. Then, with the left foot, she took up a pen and placed it between the first and second toes of the right foot. She then tried the nib, dipped the pen in the ink, and began to write a letter. Not only could she write, but she could play the piano, with her feet! Toes cannot, of course, be made as long as fingers, however carefully they may be trained, and therefore their span of the keys is necessarily small. But Miss Sturgeon -- for such is her name -- played several airs, Silver Bells among them, with much taste.

While looking at this performance, I felt quite humiliated. Why have I allowed my toes to degenerate into mere vulgar instruments of locomotion, when they are capable of so much more? Their development as fingers does not preclude their ordinary use, for I met Miss Sturgeon on her way to the Dime Museum, and she walked like any other young woman.

I am told that she is thoroughly well educated, is a graduate of one of the ladies' colleges, and receives pupils. But she can earn so much more by exhibiting her powers in public than by teaching that for the present she has chosen the former mode of living. To such persons the Dime Museum is a positive Providence.

Bio Article*A Unique Entertainment
Miss Lizzie L. Sturgeon's Performance at the Fair

Miss Lizzie L. Sturgeon, a native of Carlisle, Pa., now in Charleston, has secured a space in the main building of the fair for her fancy work bazaar during fair week. An advance notice of her says" One of the most curious and interesting proofs of human study, ingenuity and perseverance can accomplish, even in the fact of natural disadvantages, is show in the person of Miss Lizzie L. Sturgeon, a native of Carlisle, Pa., who was born without shoulder blades, and for the first time will visit your town.

The little lady's hands are dependent upon her, but they are now, as they have been from infancy, inactive, and she must therefore rely on her feet and tows for services ordinarily manual. In standing by her side you certainly will be interested in the lady's needle and fancy work. Miss Sturgeon embroiders, crochets, draws and sews. She threads a needle with as much apparent ease and surely as dexterous as the average modern housewife. She writes a very pretty hand, holding the pen steadily between her toes. The scissor she wields with equal ease and steadiness. After you have seen many of her interesting expositions of her ability, she will turn to a piano and play with her feet some sweet and pretty melodious melodies, striking the chords with ease and keeping good time. Miss Sturgeon is, in her demeanor and personality, something different from the ordinary curiosity. While her affliction naturally creates sympathy in the observer, the feeling quickly gives away to admiration for her self-helpfulness.

Research Notes

Research Roadblock*Lizzie Line Sturgeon married Robert Brown in 1894. She appears in newspaper ads for a few years later but then drops out of sight (last known ad was 1901). Lizzie and Robert can be found in Warrior, Alabama in a bording house in the 1900 census. Not sure why they were in Warrior nor what happened to them afterwards.; Principal=Robert A. Brown
