Nevada Jane Hall Herron's Autograph Book - Thanks to Amanda Ferguson Macy!  This Autograph book belonging to Nevada Hall 1891. Several autographs are from Fountain County and Montgomery County. I found this in an antique store in Crawfordsville along with a clock that belonged to Valentine Bruner, which was Nevada's grandfather. If anyone sees a relative and would like a picture please let me know. Nevada was my second cousin third times removed.
Hobart Hershberger's Autograph Book - thanks so much to John W :) Greatly appreciated

Edna Blanche Banta Morgan -- part of March & April in a 5-year diary 1942-1946 (sure wish I had the rest of it - these pages were in my grandmother, Sarah Hazel Morgan Smith's very large collection of genealogical goodies - kbz

Clair Bowsher Madden - Here are 27 pages total from my grandmother's autograph book.  The autographs go from 1887-1889. My grandmother was born in 1876. She was about 13 years old. What I find interesting that my grandfather, A.G. Madden signed the book and tells her to grow to be a useful woman. In 1900 he married her. There was an age gap of 17 years. The last page is an advertisement that was pasted in the book. Just sent it for fun. # 22 is very pale so if you don't want to use it that is ok.   Much thanks to her loving granddaughter Jennie

Chester Monroe Simmons' of Rob Roy, Autograph Book   This is the autograph book of Chester Monroe Simmons of Rob Roy/Attica. His brother Charles was married to Maria Marlatt Simmons, sister of Newman Marlatt.  Their father was a B.F. Simmons (1832 - 1905) and he must have ran a store somewhere because I've seen an old photo of it with I'm assuming himself posing.   Thanks to Andy Rice for the submission!
