I am selling something on eBay (keep reading, please!!) that pertains to the Agate family.
I am a sentimental fool, and know that this would be VERY special to family members who have an interest in their family history.
Long story short - I came across & purchased an old Autograph book with dates & signatures from 1881 thru 1898 (at a local auction).
MARY AGATE is the young woman who owned the book ... which was lovingly signed by MANY family members.I did a Google search & found a listing of almost ALL of them on a website on the internet... and the names matched what was in this autograph book!!!
Anyway... I don't know where to start in trying to find the "right" family.
The book starts at only $10 - so it's obviously NOT about the money ...I'd sure LOVE it if a family member could obtain this, rather than just a collector on eBay.
This family ancestry started with George & Susan in England.Mary, the daughter, was from the USA - (Orland?) Illinois.Brothers were George, David & Henry.Sister was Minnie.Uncle was Abraham.Cousins were the Bentleys.
Feel free to forward onto any other Agates you may know.
Would really love it if this historical gem found it's way back to the family!!Todays date is July 31st.
