Family Record of Stephen Auspland of Frankfort, Maine - Lithograph Copyright 1878 by John R. Staples - 17.75" x 20.5"
Here is a fascinating peak into a family of the past. The Auspland family resided in Frankfort, Maine throughout the 19th century. This hand-written family record lists the children of Stephen Auspland and Sarah H. Rand who were married in Thorndike, Maine in 1852. Their children are recorded as Flora S., Costella G., Bessie, and Fred R. Auspland, born between 1853 and 1864. These and more details are hand-written on this antique lithograph, originally "executed with a pen by John R. Staples" with a listed copyright date of 1878. The lithograph is in a frame behind glass and in good antique condition. There is some deterioration in the paper typical of an item of this age, as well as age spots and small areas of discoloration. This would be a wonderful gift for the lover of ancestry and genealogy, or perhaps for the descendants of this Maine family.
There is lots of information about the Auspland family online. For instance, Sarah H. Auspland's grave can be seen here: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/161044284/sarah-h_-auspland
