1880s-1926 Autograph Album of Frances E. (Milliken) Leverton of Surry, Maine & Mount Desert Island


Autograph album kept from the early 1880s through 1926 by Frances E. (Milliken) Leverton, wife of Dr. Charles Henry Leverton, who served as a Methodist minister, before and after his medical career.

It appears that Frances married widower Benjamin Herrick Higgins, Jr., after Dr. Leverton's death; more below.


The album measures approximately 7" by 4-1/4" and contains several mementos tucked in and the sentiments of nearly 100 of Frances' relatives and friends in Maine, Massachusetts and England.  An alphabetical list of the inscribers, together with any personal information they offered, appears at the end of this post.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Frances E. Milliken was born in 1847 in Maine, the daughter of James Augustus Milliken and Lydia Tittle (Dutch) Milliken.  Frances's father inscribed the first page in her album at Surry, Maine, on June 12, 1883.


Frances had a twin sister, Flora A. Milliken, who married Robert L. Grindle.  Flora and Robert inscribed facing pages in the album.



Read more about the Milliken family of Surry, Maine, from an article entitled "The Milliken Family of North Bend and the Migration to California" by Dr. Wayne H. Smith in the August 2017 issue of the Hancock Historian, a publication of the Hancock County Genealogical Society.

About 1864, Frances, an organist, pianist and music teacher, married Charles Henry Leverton, who was born November 30, 1841 at Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  The 1870 Census found the couple living at Richmond, New York, where Charles was serving as a clergyman.  It was presumably Charles who was the Charles Henry Leverton who receiveded a degree from the Medical Department of New York University in 1880. 

The couple then moved to Maine, where Charles practiced medicine in several towns, including Livermore and Mount Desert, and possibly also Searsport and Wiscasset.   In 1895, Dr. Leverton returned to his earlier profession of Methodist clergyman and, among other duties, ministered for a year at Princeton, Maine.  The General Alumni Catalog of New York University 1833-1907, published in 1908, shows Dr. Leverton as retired and living at Cataumet, Massachusetts, the residence of several inscribers.

I didn't find records for any children for Frances and Charles.  Charles died in 1908 at Mount Desert, Maine.  Frances lived until 1932.

A 1923 record shows a marriage at Bar Harbor, Maine, between Frances Leverton - with a variant for Frances Milliken - and Benjamin H. Higgins.  I'm assuming that Benjamin was Benjamin Herrick Higgins, Jr., widower of Louisa J. (Lurvey) Higgins.  Frances died in 1932; death records give her name as Frances E. Leverton.  If the 1923 bride was indeed Frances E. (Milliken) Leverton, she apparently kept or took back the Leverton name after the death of Benjamin H. Higgins, Jr. in 1928.

Frances and Charles are buried in the Brookside Cemetery at Somesville, Mount Desert, Maine.  Benjamin Herrick Higgins, Jr., is buried in the Higgins Cemetery at Bar Harbor, Maine.

Among the interesting pages in the album:
