More Photos of Aida Austin

Aida Austin was my Grandpa Mort Austin’s sister, and my great aunt. Aida is the one that wrote the 1881 Diary I’ve posted on the right hand side of this site. She apparently developed some of her own photos, although some of the photos here are actually postcards.

My mom loaned me her photo album which I have scanned and I thought some of you would be interested in viewing the photos of the area that she had. I have posted most of the ones from the area and here are a few more.

Path near the Delaware River, I think.

This was kind of random: A photo of Harriet Beecher Stowe and her brother, Henry Ward Beecher.

  1. Mary Austin-Mom Says:

    I believe the Austins were very interested in their country. Harriet Beecher Stowe and her bro. were very famous historically during the Civil war. Harriet lived 1811 to 1896. She wrote the hymn, Still, Still with thee when purple morning breakest and my heart waketh and the shadows fall.

    I just found out that she wrote this hymn. This is the hymn that came to me the morning after my husband (Arthur Austin) passed away and I realized that though my husband was in heaven, yet the Lord was with me and that was a great comfort. Mary Austin- Louise’s Mom
