1880s Autograph Album of Hattie, presented by Mamie L. Lane of Ripley, Maine

An 1880s autograph album that was presented to "Hattie", by Mamie L. Lane of Ripley, Maine.  The album is a small one, approximately 4-1/4" x 2-1/2".

Most of the signers are from the Ripley and Dexter, Maine area, including several surnamed Lane.  Mamie L. Lane was born about 1859 in Maine, the daughter of Jeremiah Beede Lane and his wife Mary Ann (possibly also Lane) Lane, born in Vienna, Maine, and Gardner, Maine respectively, who moved to Ripley to farm and raise a family.

Mamie's paternal grandparents were John L. and Lydia (Beede) Lane.  Her maternal grandparents were Reuben and Mary (Stevens) Lane.

Sadly, Mamie and her sister Lydia Frances Lane, died fairly young, in 1899 and 1980 respectively.
