Washington County, New York Photo Gallery

Gilmore Album

This album possibly belonged to Thomas Martin Gilmore and Anna Judson Wright who left Washington Co., NY about 1858 and went West. They were married in 1859 at Lawrence, Kansas and settled at Overbook, Kansas, where the album was found. Anna was the daughter of Charles S. Wright and Abigail (Dickinson) of Greenwich (Bald Mountain), Washington County, New York. After Charles Wright died in 1861, Abigail lived in various areas with her children in Kansas, Wyoming and Colorado. It's possible it's her album since she died in 1881 in Overbook, Kansas.
