1880s/1890s Autograph Album of Frances Deborah Ogier of Camden, Maine

Blue velvet covered autograph album of Frances Deborah Ogier of Camden, Maine.  Her nickname was Fanny.

Frances Deborah Ogier was born or christened 12 May 1866 at Rockport, Maine, the daughter of Samuel Emery Ogier and wife Martha Ann (Heal) Ogier.

Her paternal grandparents were Robert and Mary (Trussell) Ogier of Camden, Maine.  Her maternal grandparents were John D. Heal and wife Deborah (Heal) Heal.

From what I could find in online sources, Frances Deborah Ogier never married.  She worked as a felt closer at a woolen mill and lived at Camden, Maine, either alone or with her older sister Orianna, who married Eli Tibbetts.  Frances Deborah Ogier died in 1964.

Her sister, Vanetta E. Ogier ("Vannie") signed a page in the autograph album, under the name of Mrs. J. H. Heal.  Vannie married James H. Heal, her cousin.  He may also have signed a page in the album under the name Jamie H. Heal.
