Finding Aid for the Sherrieb Family Album
The photo album is a green, hardbound album with flowers and a cameo decorating the front and velvet on the back cover. It has a decorative metal clasp. The album pages have slots for photographs. Some of the photographs are labeled using a labeler and others have penciled names on the album pages. Many of the photographs have been pasted into the album. The oldest photographs are tintypes of Enos and Gertrude when they are very young. A note taped inside the front of the album states: “This album was presented to Miss Gertrude Wentz of Elgin Ohio Dec 25 1898 by Enos M. Sherrieb of Mahoning Penn.” Inside the album is a letter with some genealogical information as well as sheets of paper with family names and dates recorded. Other items kept in the album are a lock of hair from Gertrude, Enos and Gertrude’s marriage license, some newspaper clippings, and funeral programs. The loose items have been removed from the album and put into an acid free folder.
