1870s/1880s Autograph Album of Emma Georgia Gilmore of Boston, Massachusetts


1870s/1880s autograph album of Emma Georgia Gilmore of Boston, Massachusetts.

Emma wrote her name on several pages, including the first end paper on which she wrote her name and pasted part of her calling card and and the back end paper, in which she inserted another calling card and wrote her address, 109 Dartmouth Street, Boston.



From what I could gather online, that section of Dartmouth Street appears to have been razed of residential buildings at one time and is now the site of large commercial buildings.

Emma added notes to many pages to reflect marriages and deaths of the signers, including her own marriage.  I found some of her notes in conflict with Massachusetts Records so she may have been trying to recall from some point in the future.  There's one autograph in the album from 1910, that of her son, I believe.  Perhaps it's then that she wrote her notes and was relying on memory.

The album contains the names of many, if not all, of the graduates of the "Centennial Class" of 1876 at the Franklin School in Boston.  An additional group of signers in 1877 mentioned "Phoenix", which may have been the school at Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Many of these signers contributed to group pages and then signed individual pages as well.

Two examples of a group Franklin School page and a group Phoenix page.



Many pages were signed at Ballard's Retreat, which I believe was the Ballard's Retreat located in East Wakefield, New Hampshire, and at Camden, Maine.

Emma also included a paper that lists the people who attended her party.



The album is approximately 7-3/4" x 5" and contains the names of over 160 people, some of whom are duplicates, including Emma's relatives, future relatives, schoolmates and friends.  An alphabetical list of the signers appears at the end of this post.

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

Emma Georgia Gilmore was born about March 1858 at Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of Rufus Samuel Gilmore and Ellen Maria (Lord) Gilmore, who were born at Horton, Nova Scotia, and Boston, Massachusetts, respectively.

Although he didn't mention a relationship, I believe that the Arthur B. Gilmore who signed a page on October 27, 1878 at Boston, Massachusetts, was Emma's brother Arthur Burgess Gilmore.


On 29 November 1881 at Boston, Massachusetts, Emma Georgia Gilmore married Franklin Snow, Jr., son of Franklin and Anna Elizabeth (Armstrong) Snow.  Franklin, Jr., was born 20 December 1858 at Boston.  He signed a page in Emma's album, first on April 16, 1877 and then on October 31, 1878.  Note Emma's note of their marriage date in the lower right corner.


I believe the page below was signed by the Franklin Snow, who was the son of Franklin, Jr. and Emma Georgia (Gilmore) Snow.  He would have been Franklin III, I believe, but perhaps they settled on Jr.  This is the only page in the album beyond the era of the 1870s and early 1880s.


Franklin Snow, Jr., was a fish merchant.  Franklin, Emma and son Franklin were living at Andover, Massachusetts at the time of the enumeration of the 1910 Census.  Franklin died at Boston, Massachusetts, of tuberculosis, on 30 April 1914.  There's mention of an Emma G. Snow of Boston who received a brokerage appointment in 1914.

The 1920 Census of Washington, D.C. lists their son Franklin G. Snow, age 23, working in railway administration and living at a boarding house.  Also listed is a widowed Emma Snow, about ten years off in age, but that could be a mistake.  By then young Franklin was married to Ethel B. Bruner.  The 1925 Census of New York City lists Franklin and Ethel, but no Emma.

Young Franklin Snow became the transportation editor for the Christian Science Monitor; many of his articles are available online.

Please refer to the list of signers below for pages signed by more relatives of Emma and Franklin.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or information on any of the signers listed below, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks!

A few of the pages that stand out:

Callie Coburn of Boston, Massachusetts, signed a page on April 7, 1879 and included an illustration of a couple and Cupid.  Emma added a note that Callie married in 1894.


George A Wellington signed a page on February 16, 1879, drew a sketch and inserted a tintype, presumably of himself, in slits in the page.




W. M. Oakman signed a page on February 19, 1879 and sketched a scene of sailing vessels and rockbound shore that may have been an imagined scene from the play "Down by the Sea" that was performed in the area about that time.  Or perhaps he was sketching the home of a real John Gale.


Howard K. Burgess, who signed a page on April 8, 1875 and who may have been the H. K. Burgess who signed another page in an impossibly tiny hand, took great pains with his coiffure and fascinator on the page below.  He must have been a great wit!  Emma added a later note that he married.




Fred O. Conant of Cumberland, Maine, signed a page on July 30, 1876 and added his photograph.  Emma wrote later notes that he graduated from Bowdoin College and that he married.  Frederick Odell Conant became a noted merchant and businessman at Portland, Maine, and compiled a genealogy of the Conant Family.



In two cases Emma pasted a newspaper clipping instead of writing her note, one of which announced the March 28, 1876 death of signer Thomas Campbell of Chelsea, Massachusetts, who had signed page in Emma's album on August 12, 1875.



The other instance was a happier one, the marriage announcement of signer Minnie A. Pearson of Boston, Massachusetts, who signed a page on January 24, 1877.  Minnie married Edwin J. Morrison on December 28, 1880.
