Bethel Academy - Signature Book of Josie Pate

Classification: Query
I visited with Martha Ray (Pate) Jones yesterday in Bryan. She had a signature book that had belonged to Josephine "Josie" Pate.

Think of this as the predecessor to the school year book. It is about the size of a men's wallet. Most of the signatures and notes were students and relatives at Bethel Academy from about 1898 to 1900.

The notes were from:

Lillie Thibodeaux
Lula Pate (her sister)
Sam Pate (her brother)
Zula Pate (her niece, daughter of William Riley Pate and Hattie Ellington)
Eula Ob... (unclear)
Rosa Johnson
Florence Dyess
Edna Weedon
Musetta (Ferguson) Todd
Emma Deason
W R West or Wert

I have scanned this book and added a few comments on the identity of the individuals, who wrote the notes.

I will be glad to share this with anyone who would like a copy.
