I have two old autograph books which belonged to my Grandmother, Emma Love. They were given to her by her mother, Mary Yeoman Love in 1880. They are signed by friends, schoolmates, relatives, and acquaintances as Emma traveled around Delaware County, although most were signed by people in Tompkins Twp. where Emma lived and Walton Twp where her grandfather lived at the time. The last dated entry is in 1890. In most cases they are signed and dated with a simple little "ditty" included -one that a person might expect in an autograph book from the 1880's. In some cases, the place where they were signed is included. They are valuable in that they provide evidence of "time and place". And if anyone finds an ancestor listed, I would be happy to look up what else was included in the entry, although, in most cases it is just a cute little saying. - Pam Frederic, February 17, 2000
