1880s/90s Autograph Album of Jennie R. Bush of San Jose, California; student at State Normal School


1880s/1890s autograph album that belonged to Jennie R. Bush of San Jose, California.  Many of the autographs were acquired from fellow students at the State Normal School at San Jose, California, most, presumably, from the Class of 1883.  Later pages were inscribed at Garberville, California, where Jennie may have had a teaching job or was perhaps recuperating; see the excerpt below.

From "A Historical Sketch of the State Normal School at San Jose, California", published in 1889:




The album, a large one, measures about 8-1/4" x 6-3/4" and contains the sentiments of perhaps 230 or so people, some of whom signed more than once, some of whom signed one page as a married couple and some of whom signed group pages with as many as 27 names.  An alphabetical surname list and an alphabetical list of the signers, together with any personal information they offered, appear at the end of this post.

 The only relative who inscribed a page was Jennie's sister Annie Marie Bush, with pages signed before and after her marriage to Charles Henry Plaskett about 1894.  Incidentally, it appears that Jennie married Dudley William Plaskett, older brother of Anna Marie's husband Charles Henry Plaskett, about 1894; perhaps they had a double wedding.  Sadly, however, neither marriage lasted; unlike Anna, I don't believe Jennie had any children.

Most online trees have the sisters' parents as teacher Soloman Bush and wife Anna Elizabeth (Brown) Bush, who had moved to California from Busti, New York.  Several of the Censuses have Jennie's year of birth as about May 1870, which would have made Jennie improbably young to have been in the Class of 1883 at the State Normal School.  The 1920 Census gives her year of birth as 1862, which seems more fitting.

With a bit more digging, I found that Soloman and Anna had a daughter Jane Rhoda born about 1849 in New York, and I found a California death record for a Jennie R. Plaskett, born about 1849, died July 12, 1934 at Monterey, California.  That would have made Jennie in her thirties when she attended State Normal School.  Anna Marie Bush was born June 5, 1874, as shown on her 1946 California death record.

In addition to teaching, Jennie served as postmaster at Larabee, California.  She was also a noted naturalist, with an extensive collection of shells displayed at the State Normal School Museum.  If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or information on any of the signers listed, below, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

The album contains numerous items tucked inside, including what appears to be a birthday card from Annie M. Bush to her mother, Mrs. A. C. Bush or Mrs. A. E. Bush.  If Mrs. A. E. Bush, that might be Anna Elizabeth (Brown) Bush.




Even more interesting is the sketch of a woman done in Busti, New York in 1860; it's tempting to think that the sketch might be of Anna Elizabeth (Brown) Bush or other family member.




There's also a photograph of an elderly woman, possibly a Bush or Brown relative.
