I was working with some of my family history records and found this little book that was given by my great-great grandmother to my grandmother when she was a baby. Then when I was a baby, my grandmother gave it to me.
The original giver was Maria Elizabeth Harper Stone, 1850-1929.
She sent the little book to her granddaughter, Lois Elizabeth Stone, 1913-1997. The photo is of Maria's daughter-in-law, Edith Hall Stone, with her firstborn, Lois, in 1913.
Lois, who was my grandmother, sent it to me when I was a baby in 1960. This was the photo taken within hours of my birth.
I don't have children, so I'll leave it to my niece Rachel for her descendants.
I've photographed the book from cover to cover, including the inscriptions. Enjoy!
|The inscription is from my grandmother Lois to my mother, Judith.|
