Page of Phebe Paul in Autograph Book of Bertha Clements, Waldo, Maine
This is the page that Phebe Paul of Waldo, Maine, signed in the autograph book of Bertha Clements of Waldo Center, Maine. The autograph is dated June 28, 1889.
To see a post with images of many of the pages and with family history information on the autograph book's owner, click Bertha Clements.
Phebe Paul was born 22 November 1870 in Maine, the daughter of Richard Rush Paul and his wife Patience B. (Stephenson) Paul, both born in mid-coastal Maine. Phebe's paternal grandparents were Samuel and Charity (Mansfield) Paul. Her maternal grandparents were Jerome and Phoebe B. (Sanborn) Stephenson.
I found Phebe in the Censuses from 1880 and 1900-1930. She was still going by the name Phebe Paul in 1930.
