1889/1890s Autograph Album with Signers from the Gardiner, Maine, area
1889/1890s autograph album with signers from the Gardiner, Maine, area and Peabody, Massachusetts.
The album is approximately 8-1/2" x 5-1/2 and contains only 5 signed pages. The pages below are shown in the alphabetical order of the signers.
V. Louisa Chisam of North Whitefield, Maine, signed on January 25, 1892. She was Viroqua Louisa Chisam, born 1 January 1867 at Whitefield, Maine, daughter of John and Mary Elizabeth (King) Chisam. She would marry Frank T. Yeaton, son of Asa H. and Caroline W. (Mooers) Yeaton, at Wenham, Massachusetts, on 12 October 1905.

Josephine Kealey of East Pittston, Maine, signed on January 17, 1890. Josephine was born 30 May 1868 and died 3 December 1927. I believe she was the daughter of John and Ellen M. (Doyle) Kealy, the spelling on their headstone.
