Ott Bible

This Bible record was published in History and Genealogy of
The Reed Family, Johann Philib Ried in Europe and America
W.H. Reed, Ph. G., M.D., Norristown, Pennsylvania, 1929.
Page 476-7.

From other references to this family in the book, it appears that
this family was from Northampton County, Pennsylvania or
nearby. Rebecca's father, Joseph Kooken, was a Captain in the
Northampton County militia during the Revolution.
