This is my way of sharing an autograph book that belonged to my great great grandmother’s sister Elizabeth Norton. Elizabeth was born in 1862 in Quebec City to parents Richard Lee Norton and Hannah Pozer Jeffrey.
Elizabeth spent her life in Quebec City, she married James O’Grady in 1891 and although she had 3 children she left no descendants. Elizabeth passed away in 1897 at the age of 34, and none of her children lived past infancy. Her sister kept and treasured her autograph book and it has passed down through the family. I have been wanting to find a way to share this book and came up with the idea of putting it into a video. Please take some time to view it, I think you may like it!
The album contains the signatures of –
Victor P. Simpson
R J Norton (Richard Jeffery Norton – brother)
Carrie Norton (sister)
J. O. G. – (future husband James O’Grady)
N. G. Fellows
Addie Higgins (Adelaide Higgins)
Emmy Higgins (Emily Higgins)
Blanche Jeffery (cousin)
Odile Jeffery (cousin)

That’s great – thank you Jana!
What a clever way to bring the autograph book ‘to life’. Loved recognizing some of the voices in the video!
