Autograph Album of December 25, 1888 from Lewiston, Maine; possibly owned by Alice G. Miller (1868-1930), future Wife of Calvin E. Hodgdon

Autograph album started on December 25, 1888, presumably a Christmas gift, and inscribed by people from Lewiston, Maine. 

The album is in pieces, so it's hard to determine the owner, but she may have been Alice G. Miller (1868-1930), who would marry Calvin E. Hodgdon in 1892.

The album measures approximately 6-1/2" by 4-1/4" and contains nine pages of inscriptions.  An alphabetical list of the inscribers appears at the end of this post.

Surnames in the Album
  • Brown
  • Bucknam
  • Lunt
  • Merrill
  • Miller  (2)
  • Peabody
  • Rowe
  • Torsey

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

Alice G. Miller (1868-1930), was the daughter of Samuel Robinson Miller and Elizabeth (Hodgkins) Miller. In 1892, Alice would marry Calvin E. Hodgdon (1867-1952).

If you have information on Alice G. Miller or any of the people on the list of inscribers below, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
