Woolverton Bible

The Holy Bible, Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Philadelphia, Stereotyped and Published by C. Alexander
& Co., 1838. Not in Hills -- possibly a variant of Hills #865.

This Bible is in good condition. The pages and binding are
in good condition with an inch tear at the top of the spine.
Wear to the front and back boards and external hinge cracking,
but a nice looking copy.

This family is distantly related to me, and is descended from
the immigrant Charles Wolverton as follows:

Charles Woolverton
Son -- Roger Woolverton (b. 1 December 1700) and Mary ---
Son -- Roger Woolverton (b. 16 July 1747) and Martha Thatcher

This is according to The Woolverton Family 1693-1850 and
by David MacDonald and Nancy N. McAdams,
Penobscot Press 2001. They have this family in Hunterdon County,
New Jersey (home of many Woolvertons) and Sarah Case as
Sarah Kase. This book is the defining work on the subject of the
Woolverton/Wolverton family.

It appears that this was Jacob and Elizabeth Fauss's Bible, and
they probably wrote Sarah's maiden name from memory.
