1893-1903 Autograph Album of Sisters Myrtle Ellen Littlefield and Hazel Belle Littlefield of Hermon, Maine; Hampden, Maine; Orrington, Maine


1893-1903 autograph album owned by sisters Myrtle Ellen Littlefield and Hazel Belle Littlefield of Penobscot County, Maine.  It appears they lived in Hampden, Maine; Hermon, Maine; and Orrington, Maine; and other nearby places.

Their names appear on an end paper; Hazel also inscribed a page on her own.



Schoolmates from Hermon, Hampden and Orrington inscribed pages.  Surnames with multiple inscribers include:
  • Hatch
  • Henry
  • Hicks
  • Littlefield
  • Perkins
  • Rogers
From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested

The sisters were the children of William Samuel Littlefield and Maria Nancy (Perkins) Littlefield.  Myrtle was born about June 1883 and Hazel about April 1890.  Myrtle would marry Fred Stearns Pierce in 1906.  Hazel would marry Roscoe Leslie Smith in 1910.

Two inscribers indicated they were cousins of Myrtle and Hazel:
  • Ethel L. Hammond of Hampden Center, Hampden, Maine, who inscribed a page on March 20, 1902
  • Bessie Littlefield; inscribed at Hampden, Maine, who inscribed a page on November 13, 1899
The page shown below was inscribed by seven people:
  1. Florence May Rogers
  2. Jennie L. Fowler of Goodale's Corner, Orrington, Maine
  3. Onata L. Chapman
  4. Lillian Hatch
  5. Mildred May Ryder or Mildred Mary Ryder
