1980s HANDWRITTEN GENEALOGY NOTES re: DESCENDANTS of WALTER PALMER of the 1629 Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony
Three Ring Binder filled with Handwritten Notes, Letters, and Ephemera related to Descendants of WALTER PALMER of the 1629 Charlestown, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Notes were handwritten by, and letters were written to, Muriel Palmer Owen. Based on the USPS date stamps on the letters' envelopes this information was compiled mostly during the 1980s and 1990s. Muriel Palmer Owen was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and was clearly researching various branches of her ancestry. She died in 2017. This notebook / binder came from her estate. Three ring binder, stiff covers covered in vinyl, pockets on both the inside front and rear covers, filled with 5.5x8.5 inch paper, plus lots of laid in letters and notes. There is a paper label taped onto the front cover that has the handwritten title: "Genealogical Records / Muriel P. Owen / Sonoma, CA". 38 of the notebook pages have handwritten genealogical notes relating to the descendants of Walter Palmer. The pages seem to be somewhat alphabetically arranged by family last names, though many are not in their proper order. Family names include Wakeman, Cogswell - Willis, Dailey, Herschker (Husker), Janisch, Mead, Owen, Wells, Truesdell, and others. Also contains approximately 20 pieces of loose relevant ephemera, including letters from relatives supplying information about the family, and various handwritten notes. Condition: There are creases, signs of handling, pages pulling from the rings, etc., but all the writing remains clear and fully legible.
