Gerow Bible

Sumner & Goodman, Hartford, 1849.

The Bible itself is in good shape, however there are a
couple of holes in the genealogy papers that obliterated
a date or two. One person's entry was intentionally
removed by eraser. A curious anomaly here is that although
the dates of the children's marriages are all dutifully
listed, the names of the spouses are not : (

After the entries for the grandchildren's births, someone
pencilled the first names of the parent after the entry. These
names are in [brackets].

Bathsheba Gale in this Bible is a daughter in the GALE Bible on this site.

Census sources put this family in the Schuyler and Seneca
Counties in New York, confirmed by LDS.

This bible is currently in the possession of Tracy St. Claire
