I bought an old autograph album and I am researching the people who signed it.

Minneapolis, Minn. and Warren, Ohio are the two cities listed and the dates range from 1882 to 1902.

There is no formal identification (This album belongs to....) but people reference a "Gracie". I did find a page with "Grace V. Brackett" in the center and her friends wrote funny sayings all over the page, like your friends do in a year book.

There is an entry for a "Aunt Cate" but no surname.

Some of the surnames found are:
Bragdon
Boardman
Cook
Darling
Davis/Davies
Gilder
Hart
Huey
Haukiusm (?)
Jones
Kingsley
Laraway
Monroe
Naegele (?)
Newton
Osgood
Oswald
Parkhurst
Pelton
Riker
Rusler
Seixas
Sullivan
von Schlegell
Waters

I found in my research, where a Lizzie Sophie Oswald married a Floyd Melvin Laraway. Her memorial is listed on Find A Grave and I posted her page on her memorial so her descendents could see her actual handwriting, March 5, 1882.

I am not looking to sell the album but only to research the names and I am willing to scan and email a copy of any of the pages to anyone who wants them.

Thank you for any help.
