1889 Autograph Book of Lula G. Stone of Oxford, Maine

1889 autograph book of Lula G. Stone of Oxford, Maine.  

As autograph books go, it's a rather large one, at approximately 9" x 6", but it's thin.

Lula Genevieve Stone was born in February, possibly 1881, the daughter of Luduscar Clark Stone and wife Edna Etta (Wardwell) Stone, born in Casco, Maine, and Otisfield, Maine, respectively.

Her paternal grandparents were John Clark Stone and wife Charlotte E. (Morse) Stone.  Her maternal grandparents were Edward Files Wardwell and wife Ruby F. (Wardwell) Wardwell.

On 26 February 1913, Lula married Henry Asa Andrews.  He was born 29 October 1878 at Otisfield, Maine, the son of William Wallace Andrews and wife Addie A. (Pike) Andrews.

By the time of the 1930 Census, Lula and Henry were raising a family at Oxford, Maine.
