1850s Autograph Album of Sophia H. Keller of Pleasant Run, Ohio


1850s+ autograph album that belonged to Sophia H. Keller of Pleasant Run, Ohio, from before and after her marriage to John B. Caldwell.  Inscribers hailed from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Louisiana and other states.  Many of them were Sophia's relatives and in-laws from the Keller, Caldwell, Monteith, Parr and Trumbo families.

Below, the first end paper and the last:



Sophia inscribed a page of welcome at Pleasant Run, Ohio, on June 25, 1855.  She also added her name to several of the many group pages in the album and may have penned some of the unsigned pages.


The album measures approximately 7-3/4" x 6" and contains the sentiments of possibly 200 of more of Sophia's relatives and friends.  The number is hard to determine as many people inscribed pages and added their names to group pages.  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 album is in fair condition, with separated covers and some portions unbound.  It's possible there are missing pages, but the pages you would expect to find are all present, such as the title page, below, which shows that the album was published by J. C. Riker of 129 Fulton Street in New York City.  Two hand-colored floral illustrations, in addition to that on the title page, survive; there may have been more.


From brief online research, hopefully correct:  [corrections and additions welcome!]

Sophia H. Keller was born July 19, 1830 in Fairfield County, Ohio, the daughter of Daniel and Susannah (Ruffner) Keller.  Sophia had, I believe ten siblings, at least two of whom inscribed pages in her album.  Augustus Ruffner inscribed a two-page sentiment on September 5, 1856 and added his name to a group page.



Sophia's sister Martha Anne Keller, "Mat", inscribed individual pages and added her name to a group page.


On September 17, 1856, Sophia H. Keller married John B. Caldwell, son of David and Mary Caldwell, who moved from Ohio to Edina, Missouri.  John was born in Ohio on February 13, 1829.  I believe Sophia and John had eleven children before Sophia's death in 1888.  In 1890, John married Allie A. Burns, daughter of Patrick and Catherine (Rice) Burns.  He died in 1915.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.


Because of the list of inscribers is so extensive, I'm not able to show many images of pages in the album, but I wanted to feature at least one of the group pages.  Surnames on the page:  Bonebreak; Caldwell [multiple]; Cornell [?]; Coulson [multiple]; Ewing; Healey; Jackson; Keller [Sophia, who inscribed the center box]; Kumler [?]; Makly [?]; Miller [2]; Myers; Powell [?]; Spencer; Trumbo [multiple]; Wheeler; Winter.


Another page worth featuring: that inscribed in April 1856 by Mollie E. P. Seib of Allodium Mound, which I think was located at Bremen, Ohio.
