Dewalt Family Records

This family record is a good example of Fraktur script done by professional scriveners for Bible's in the mid-19th century, mostly in Pennsylvania and other areas with heavy German populations. This was signed by A. Schwan. It may have been a practice piece for an inscription in a book -- it is the first piece I have seen on loose paper, especially lined loose paper.

The LDS site has this marriage occuring in Crawford, Scioto County, Ohio.
