1898-1905 Journal of the Methodist Episcopal "Sociable" Club at Pembroke, Maine


1898-1905 journal of the Methodist Episcopal "Sociable" at Pembroke, Maine.  There was a reference to the Iron Works Church, so this organization may have been associated with that church, though there was at least one other in the town.  Read more about the Iron Works here.

See an earlier journal that covers the years 1892-1898 here.

Found at the end of this post:
  • an alphabetical surname list
  • an alphabetical list of names found within the journal, many repeated dozens of times; corrections welcome!
  • images of all pages in the album

The journal, one of several found, measures approximately 8-1/2" by 7".  It was kept by several of the members serving terms as secretary, with varying handwriting and spelling.  If you notice errors, please leave a comment or contact me directly.

Two pages contain the by-laws and two others list the members:  [Click on an image to enlarge it.]
