Mattie Carroll Fryar Memory Book

    This information is contributed by Jackie Purdy

    This is a small book, (I would call it an autograph) book, that was presented to my GRANDMOTHER MATTIE CARROLL FRYAR, Christmas 1886 by the M.E.S.S., Magnolia, North Carolina. Jackieís notes: This would have been 121 years ago, and my Grandmother would have been 12 years old, she was born 19 Nov. 1874 in Magnolia and died 6 Oct. 1909 in Egypt, Effingham Co. Georgia. Some of the notes are signed by names familiar to those in Duplin co. Enjoy.. Jackie
