Arthur W. Partridge Autograph Book
Crete, Nebraska 1880-1881
I received permission from Pricilla McElvein (Mrs. Richard McElvein), Mountain Brook, Alabama, to publish the names found in her grandfather's autograph book.
The autograph book was given to her grandfather, Mr, Arthur W. Partridge, for Christmas in 1880 at Crete, NE. The book is black, tan and silver, There is a notary stamp -- R. I, Cornwell, Saline County, NE inside.
Mrs. McElvein would enjoy hearing from anyone who recognizes the names listed. She is also interested in information about "Star School" in Saline County where her grandfather taught school and how the school got its name.
Mrs. McElvein states that she also has many old pictures, some of which might be some of Mr. Partridge's friends at Crete. If you feel that you might be able to help get them identified she would be delighted to hear from you. Possibly Mrs. McElvein could photocopy some of these if you would contact her.
Copies of the autograph book will be on file with the Nebraska State Genealogical Society and the Nebraska State Historical Society Library.NAME SITUATION PLACE DATE H. H.
