These pages were removed from the Bible, and therefore
I cannot date the Bible with certainty. The inscription is
dated 1876, and the record engravings are copyrighted 1873.
They were obtained from a man in New York who pulled
family pages from many Bibles before they were discarded.
These entries are difficult to read and in some cases damaged
by attempted erasing of other entries. Please view the scans
and make up your own mind.
There is also an unidentified CDV of a man, with a Pittston,
photographer mark, and a flower with a piece of paper reading
"Flower from Mother Marsh's grave". There are also baptism
certificates for Ethel Juliette Marsh and Nathan Aquila Marsh,
who were baptized in Athens, Pa., by Geo. A. Cure of the
Methodist Episcopal Church.
