In February 2021, we received the loan of the Louisa J Williamson Autograph Book. Louisa J Williams, the daughter of Thomas Williamson and Lucinda Oard, was born February 27, 1843. In 1858 she received this book as a gift before departing to college. It is filled with the cordia words of her neighbors, friends, and family. It provides an insight into the small community of Dry Run, West Portsmouth, Washington Township, Scioto County, Ohio.
