I've "rescued" an old autograph album which originally belonged to Jennie
BABB of Coburg, Iowa. The album contains entries from both friends and
family members dating from 1892-1894 including family members for the DAVIS,
BABB, and BURRIS families.
Information included in the album is as follows:

Based on limited research, I believe that the album belonged to Jennie Belle
BABB b. 1878 or 1880 in IA to parents Samuel Martin BABB and Julia Ann
SWEARTS. Jennie married Winfield Scott WOODS on the 24th of Nov 1904 in
Coburg, IA, and died 17 Oct 1969, buried in Nodaway, Missouri. Cousin
"Hattie" signed in the album is probably Harriet Agnes BABB b. 29 Mar 1874
in IA to parents Benjamin Franklin BABB and Caroline Rachel WEILENMAN.
Harriet married George Cass CLARK in Red Oak, IA on the 25th of March 1897,
and died 9 Apr 1933 at Griswold, IA.
Cousin Myrtle DAVIS appears to be the daughter of Robert H. & Mary A. DAVIS
who along with 3 children were living in Coburg during the 1880 census.
Robert H. age 29, born in OH to a Mother born in PA, his wife Mary A. age
28, born in IA to parents born in IL and NJ respectively. Their children
were, Amos E. age 8, Myrtle R. age 4, and Lewis A. age 10 months. All of
the children were born in IA.
Goldie Ethel BURRIS b. 14 Jan 1882 in Coburg, IA was the daughter of Arthur
Miller BURRIS and Samantha Elizabeth ADDISON. Goldie married on the 2nd of
June 1909 and died 14 July 1954. The same BURRIS Family including Orville
BURRIS also signed in the book were recorded in the 1880 census living in
Coburg including, Arthur M. age 37, born in Indiana to parents born in NC
and OH respectively, his wife Samantha E. age 33, also born in IN to IN born
parents. The family included 4 children, Melina E. age 10, Nora M. age 5,
Mattie age 3, and Orville age 1, and a nephew, Fred BURRIS age 10.
I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that the album can be
returned to its rightful place with family. If you are a member of this
family, or know someone who might be, please contact me.
