1880s/1890s Autograph Album of Evelyn Eliza Hicks of South Robbinston, Maine

1880s/1890s Autograph Album of Evelyn Eliza Hicks of South Robbinston, Maine.

 

Evelyn Eliza Hicks was born about 1872 at Robbinston, Maine, perhaps in South Robbinston in the area of Maple Point on Boyden Lake.  

 

Her parents were Valentine and Mary Ellen (Noddin) Hicks, born at Buctouche, Kent County, New Brunswick, and Deer Island, Charlotte County, New Brunswick, respectively.

 

Her paternal grandparents were Israel Hicks of New Brunswick and wife Abigail (Carlisle) Hicks, born at Meddybemps, Maine.

 

Her maternal grandparents were George Noddin and Eliza (Lord) Noddin of New Brunswick; they moved to Robbinston, Maine.

 

Evelyn's sisters Carrie Maud Hicks, who married Clifford S. Lovell, and 

Lucy M. Hicks, who married, Howard A. Cline, signed pages in the autograph album.

 

In 1894, Evelyn Eliza Hicks married Walter F. Anderson, son of George and Mary J. Anderson of Stoneham, Massachusetts.  Walter signed two pages in Evelyn's autograph album, below.

 

The couple lived in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.  The 1900 Census found them at Stoneham, Massachusetts, where Walter was employed as a shoe laster.  

 

In the 1910 Census, they were living at Parsonfield, Maine, where Walter was working as a shoemaker.  The 1920 Census found them at  Farmington, New Hampshire; Walter was still working in the shoe industry. The 1930 Census found them farming poultry at Buxton, Maine.

 

The couple had, I think, four children:

  • Leslie Walter W. Anderson, born about 24 June 1895 at Stoneham, Massachusetts; m. Hazel A. Perkins
  • Bertha E. Anderson, born about 1898 at Massachusetts
  • Earl S. Anderson, born 28 September 1900 at Stoneham, Massachusetts
  • Ethel Hicks Anderson, born 1 January 1902 at Stoneham, Massachusetts
