If anyone has information about any of these folks from the autograph album of Maggie Darby 1885 - 1928 in or around Westboro, Ohio, I would appreciate hearing from you.Once the transcription is posted on-line, I will post the link to the images and information in a message to this forum.
I close with a typical inscription from the album.Perhaps someone is interested in seeing what their grandmother, great-grandmother, or great-great-grandmother expressed to Maggie Darby so many years ago: "Friend Maggie, When the name that I write here is dim on the page And the leaves of your album are yellow with age Still think of me kindly and do not forget That where ever I am I remember you yet.Your friend and schoolmate, Bessie Deniston, Westboro, Ohio, January 6, 1886."
BTW, I bought the album in an antique store in Lebanon, OH about three years ago.
