Louisa's Scrapbook

Louisa was born in 1845 to a very wealthy family. Her grandfather was president of the NY Gas Co. & his house in NY was one of the 1st ones with gas lighting. Louisa’s life was none other than incredible & yet so heartbreaking. In the span of just a few years Louisa looses her grandparents, her sister & brother-in-law to tuberculosis & then her father & mother. She was left alone to care for her sister’s 2 little children. This scrapbook is FULL of her amazing life & traveling adventures.
