Harriet and her sister were born in 1825 and several pictures feature them and their parents. There is a small genealogy tree laid in for the Stanger family going on to the fifth generation however, it ends at the second generation for Harriet's family. A small article is laid in about Solomon H. Stanger who in 1779 purchased 200 acres of land in Gloucester County and started glass making in the town that is now known as Glassboro. Though the connection is not written in the scrapbook, Solomon H. Stanger is the uncle of Harriet and Susie Stanger who also grew up in Gloucester County. Other paper ephemera include invitations to baby showers and academic awards for various children from the family. Many of the photographs feature different family members by generation. Most of the photographs also include the negatives. One color picture shows a 100 year old wooden cradle handmade by Jacob Stanger with a small blonde doll sitting inside. Another picture features Harriet Stanger at 81 years old with a warm smile unusual to that time frame. There are quite a few pictures on Nina Knight's parents and her home which was built by her father. Several photos show the extended family of Nina and her sister Susie, their parents, cousin's, and children. Nina was born in 1888 in New Jersey. She set up her family's 15th annual reunion in 1959 and was in charge of the historical notes and pictures for the family tree. Nina was married to Aaron Knight but did not have any children. Nina passed away in 1961 after finishing what she could of her family's scrapbook and was buried in Tansboro, New Jersey. An interesting look on the extensive family tree created by a young woman for her extended family living in New Jersey from 1850-1950.
