1880s era Autograph Album of Mary A. Proctor - Harrison, Maine area signers

Mary A. Proctor was born 15 April 1874 at Salem, New Hampshire, the daughter of Horace Fernando Proctor and Theresa Albina (Hitchings) Proctor.  Alternatively, I found another record showing Mary's mother as Flora.


See the page of Mary A. Proctor for more of her family history.


List of signers, in alphabetical order:


E. M. Briggs, Harrison, Maine

Alice L. Chute, North Bridgton, Maine

May L. Mills, Harrison, Maine

John H. Proctor, Harrison, Maine [Mary's brother]

Mamie Proctor, Harrison, Maine  [this may be a nickname for Mary herself]

Minnie S. Proctor, Harrison, Maine [Mary's twin sister]

Theresa A. Proctor [Mary's mother]

E. H. Purington, Harrison, Maine

Edith Roes, Bridgton, Maine

Lillian G. Segon, Bridgton, Maine

Nellie G. Trumble, Brighton, Maine [she spelled it Brighton, and there is a Brighton, Maine, but I also found Trumbles in Bridgton]

Evie Winn, Bridgton, Maine


Scans of the pages: [no scans of the many blank pages]






I wish I knew which grandmother presented Mary with this autograph album.  Both Lavina (Thompson) Proctor and Mary Hill (Lane) Hitchings were alive through the 1880s.  [And there's the monkey wrench of the record that shows Flora as Mary's mother, rather than Theresa Albina (Hitchings) Proctor.]




Mary's brother John H. Proctor signed the page below.













Notice how May, below, inscribes her page to "Mamie" and identifies herself as Mary's aunt.  This makes me wonder if the previous page inscribed by Miss Mamie Proctor was inscribed by Mary A. Proctor herself.

I found several Mills families living at Harrison, Maine. 






The page, below, was signed by Mary's mother, Theresa Albina Proctor. [assuming she was Mary's birth mother and not "Flora".]










The page below was signed by Mary's twin sister, Minnie S. Proctor.
