Vote Babb!

The newest document I have retrieved through the worlds largest Lost & Found website (aka eBay) is a push card for the 1875 Massachusetts Election. Walter Babb (1-4-2-2-1-7-6) was running on a down ballot race as a Commissioner of Insolvency, which apparently handled bankruptcies. Walter’s connection back to the Isles of Shoals is through Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Sampson Jr, Sampson, Phillip of the Isles of Shoals. Just 4 years later Walter died and the results of the election are not clear, though Gaston did win the Governor’s Race.

So if you are tired of current politics (and who isn’t?) take a stroll back to a simpler time and remember that a vote for Gaston is a vote for Babb!
