Item: [autograph book] of Flora Bevis of Virginia, Cass County, Illinois 1873-1877

Description: Very worn autograph book of Flora Bevis of the small city of Virginia in Cass County, Illinois. She has signed the first page. Most of the signatures are dated 1875 (full date range is 1873-1877). All but a couple of the pages are signed. A few of the signatures are inscribed by members of the Bevis family living in Bevis, Ohio. One of the signatures is inscribed by a schoolmate from Virginia High School.

Flora Bevis (1859-1940) grew up in the town of Virginia in Cass County, Illinois. She is the great-granddaughter of Jesse Bevis, the namesake and early settler of Bevis in Hamilton County, Ohio. She married Joseph McIntire in 1885 and was widowed prior to 1900. By 1900, she was living in Urbana with her siblings and resided there, at least, until 1912. By the early 1920s she was living in Long Beach, California.

The condition worn and very fragile. The leather spine is chipped and separated from the front board. One leaf is loose. Some of the ink inscriptions are very faded, but most are legible. It has a twill tape strap in the binding holding it all together securely, though it feels very shaken.
