Helen A Blake photo album, so-called, to identify this as one of several Jones family albums that appear to have contributions by more than one generation. There are two styles of handwriting, presumably some by Helen Angeline (Blake) Jones. The album date is interesting, in that it is a mixed album designed to contain both cabinet size photos and CDV's. This is a 50-page album but only 41 page have photos, and there a few blanks on those pages. Labelling of the photo was done below the inserted photo. I have numbered the pages sequentially. The CDV's are 4 to a page and are numbered, e.g., "19.1, 19.2, 19.3...."

The Jones relationship to many of the photos was unclear until a recent serendipitous finding is that many of the CDV's are about the same age as Helen's daughter, Kate Augusta (Jones) Noyes. It turns out that many photos are of her Littleton High School classmates. Most of them are found in a Littleton student catalog on Ancestry.com $ for the year 1876-1877.

Additionally, an alumni catalog of Littleton students (also Ancestry.com $) was published listing students from 1868-1891, and some life details, if available. A further finding is that with the CDV's many of the photos are paired with future spouses placed adjacent to one another: Classmate Ed White, page 19.1 is next to classmate Millie Morrill, page 19.2
Isaac Calhoun (1832-1900) may be positioned next to both of his wives, Lydia Etta (Hildreth) Calhoun (1847-1884) and Flora R (Young) Calhoun (1846-1916)
Frank O Simonds (1857-1889) is next to his wife: Ellen (Foster) Farnsworth (1857-aft.1940)
Laura Maria Cobleigh (1840-1913) and husband George Little (1832-1918) are adjacent.
Frederick Ellsworth Goodall (1861-1922) and wife Mary Edith Tarbell (1861-) are paired in the album.
Mark Stevenson Jones (1844-1909) and wife Ploomy R (Houghton) Jones (1846-1912) are on facing pages, and again on adjacent CDV slots.

Kate died young. Both Helen and her daughter, Adelaide Maria (Jones) Lucas moved to Spokane. With Addie's death in 1939 Addie's daughter, Kate Isabel (Lucas) Seale, became custodian

This is still part of the Seale family collection, RHSeale MD, grandson of Kate Isabel (Lucas) Seale
