My Ancestors Signature #18 ~ Mary Ellen (Smith) Page

signatureHow many of you have searched for any kind of photo of an Ancestor and you weren’t able to find one? Especially for one who lived before photography was invented? Have you ever looked through documents like wills, or marriage licenses and you discover that your 3x Great Grandpa had signed it? This signature is a little piece of him that was left behind. By posting it online we can preserve it for future generations. I am very excited because I found the signature of a female ancestor as they are hard to come by!
