[Note: The above transcription is verbatim copy of original source which was given to me by Mary Jane Treptow of St. Louis, Missouri. Mary Jane's maiden name is Keyes and they were given to her by Aunt Ethel Pavey. These pages were torn out of a family bible and are brittle and folded (for a long time it seems) and I don't know exactly whose bibles they are from. I am assuming they belonged to Ethel Keyes Pavey and are actually from the Keyes family bibles. The notation indicates comments or clarifications by me - Kim Curlin Wettroth]
