1880s Autograph Album of Mamie, Vassalboro and China area of Maine




1880s autograph album that belonged to a "Mamie", who may have been a student at E. H. S., likely Erskine High School at South China, Maine, as many of the signers signed E. H. S.




On the page, Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Starrett indicated that the owner of the autograph album was a "Miss Mamie".




The following signer indicated that she was a student at E. H. S. and a schoolmate of Mamie.




The following signer, Miss Lutie Merrill [I may have misinterpreted her given name] of Weeks Mills, indicated she was Mamie's cousin.  Whether or not Mamie's surname was Merrill, I don't know.  Hopefully a reader will have an idea of her identity.




From these clues, I'm hoping that a reader will recognize Mamie and leave a comment with her identity.
