I have an 1883 Lowell Birthday Book that mentions 15 Aldermans. The book was given to Ethel Verena Hodge on her 17th birthday and she was born August 30, 1893.Many other names are mentioned-Barnes, Norton, Butler, Hodge, etc.
The birthdays begin in the early 1800's and end in the 1950's. Example--Maria Howe Alderman April 17, 1829.
I want to get this book into the hands of one of the major families mentioned in this book.
