1870s Autograph Album of Maggie G. Mahoney of Lawrence, Massachusetts


1870s autograph album of Maggie G. Mahoney of Lawrence, Massachusetts.


The album was presented to Maggie by her sister Julia at Christmas in 1875.


The album is approximately 7" x 4-1/4" and contains the sentiments of over 30 of Maggie's relatives and friends.  An alphabetical list of the signers appears at the end of this post.


If you have information on a Maggie G. Mahoney of Lawrence, Massachusetts, with a sister Julia, please leave a comment or contact me directly.   One of the signers was a Julia W. Mahoney, but I don't know if she was Maggie's sister Julia, or another Julia.


One interesting page was signed by someone whose name appears to be Jasi de [possibly Salvines], who left an intriguing message: Born an American, Died a Cuban patriot".  I'm sure there's an interesting story there!

Daly

Forrest
Hurley
