1880s Autograph Album of Minnie W. Brock of North Conway, New Hampshire


1880s autograph album of Minnie Wright Brock of North Conway, New Hampshire. 




From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]



Minnie Wright Brock was born 22 February 1871 at Chelsea, Massachusetts, the daughter of Leonard Wooster Brock and Henrietta L. (Wolcott) Brock, who were born in Vermont and New Hampshire respectively.

On 9 December 1897 at North Conway, New Hampshire, Minnie married John Delfred Ayer, son of John McCrillis Ayer and Elvira (Dole) Ayer.

Minnie and John had at least two children, daughters Grace and Henrietta.

I believe this was Minnie's brother Henry E. Brock, who signed a page.

Another page was signed by three people who indicated they were Minnie's cousins and sister.

Effie L. Barnes of North Conway, New Hampshire, signed a page in 1881.

May Randall of North Conway, New Hampshire, signed a page.

Nellie C. Eastman of North Conway, New Hampshire, signed a page.

Margie Thompson of North Conway, New Hampshire, signed a page in 1881.

    1. Neat! I'm assuming that the Babb surname has meaning for you, and you determined the connection. You might be related to some of the other signers, too, based on the area.
