Desire Wood, abt. 1856

I have purchased a Religious Album, for $38, which belonged to a woman named Desire Wood, from Maine. It is a leather-bound book made with blank pages and some lithographs, and many pages have hand-written passages written (by what seems to be from family and friends) to her. Many of these hand-written notes to her are poems and such, each carefully dated, and include a city name, as if each person who wrote the passage wanted her to know the origin of the person submitting the passage.
I purchased this little book in a small town in south Georgia, but its origin is clearly in or around Maine.
The notes in it, written to Desire Wood, are dated between 1852-1856. Some of the towns noted by some of the inscribers are Lowell, Farmington, N. Chelmsford, Pepperell, Hillsboro, NH, S Framingham, Strong, Fitchburg.
If you know of a descendent of Desire Wood, please contact me. I would like to reunite this book with a direct descendent.

Hello Grinnel,
I still have the Desire Wood Religious Album. I ran across this post again this morning, and it refreshed my memory that you might have a connection to Desire Wood(s), the original owner of this book.
