Hurd Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, D. Fanshaw for the American Bible Society,

This Bible is in very good condition. Binding is tight, but has
a lot of wear and some loss to the spine. The pages are in
good condition, with foxing. It is a nice example of an early
ABS Bible.

A sheet of entries was pasted over some pencilled entries.
It appears that this sheet just repeats the entries underneath
it. I cannot find mention of this family anywhere, so I do
not know where they resided.

Readers say:

I found your e-mail address on a rootsweb website.

Though the posting where I found the address is a year old, I wanted to let you know, in case you didn't already, that the Hurd family in the bible you have resided in New Hampshire. I found a record of Thomas J. Hurd born in April 1820 in Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire. I cannot find records of the other children listed in the partial transcription, but in case you wanted to know where the family lived, I wanted to pass it on to you. I have Hurd's in my ancestry but I don't think they are related to those in your bible.
