1890s Autograph Album of Ernest Escortell Titcomb of Exeter, Maine


1890s autograph album of Ernest Escortell Titcomb of Exeter, Maine.


The album is approximately 8" x 5" and contains the sentiments of 25 of Ernest's relatives, friends and schoolmates.  An alphabetical list of the signers appears at the end of this post.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]

Ernest Escortell Titcomb was born 20 August 1885 at Corinna, Maine, son of Frank L. and Carrie Bell (Young) Titcomb.  Ernest's mother, Carrie Bell (Young) Titcomb signed a page at Exeter, Maine, on January 16, 1897.


The two successive pages were signed by Carrie Bell (Young) Titcomb's parents, John Henry Young and Clara Jane (Dearborn) Young.  They signed at Corinna, Maine, on January 1, 1895.



On 29 March 1908, Ernest Escortell Titcomb married Ethel May Peavey, daughter of Clarence Randall Peavey and Sophia Jane (Willett) Peavey.  Ethel was born 3 September 1893 at Oxbow, Maine.

Ernest and Ethel farmed at Exeter, Maine, and raised a son Norman, born in 1909.
