I have an autograph book, which at one time belonged to Helen Lucy Briggs Sutliff.
Apparently she graduated from Sacramento Girls Seminary in Sacramento, CA c. July 4, 1879 as that is when the first entry was made in her autograph book. It was written in Chicago, Illinois. I surmise that the family took a trip to visit relatives following the graduation.
Some other names in this book include: your cousin Ed. C. Vallette, Myra Vallette, Chicago, Ilinois, Inez V. Pardee, Akron, Ohio, Willard Daykin, Wadsworth, Ohio, Frank V. Woodward, Wadsworth, Ohio, Mamie Murry, Roseville, Cal., Kiti Bostwick, Sacramento, Cal 11/20/1881.
Permission is given to cross post to other sites or message boards.
I thought it would be nice to find some relatives of this young lady.
Please e-mail me if any of the names sound familiar. Please use Helen Sutliff as the suject line.
