Photo album likely belonging to Cyrene Ann Hubbard (1837-1872). Daughter of Huldah Grow and Newell A. Hubbard born in Ridgeway, Orleans, New York. Married John Hurlbut V (1832-1915), son of John Hurlbut IV and Elizabeth Post. Cyrene died in Adrian, MI and some photos were likely added after her death.

I found this treasure in the archive I inherited from my grandmother. My great-great grandparents' 1890 wedding announcement included a list of gifts and who gave them. No social pressure there, right? Woe to the lowly guest who just gave a salad fork!
