Mount Bible

These pages were removed from one Bible and placed with
another Bible (an 1813 Evert Duykinck, New York Bible)
of the same general family
. I cannot tell from just these
pages from which Bible it originated, but it would be reasonable
to assume it was from a Bible older than the 1813 Bible.

These pages were folded and probably carried around. I have
seen lists like this that were carried as proof of births, deaths and
marriages for official government things like pensions, homestead
applications, censuses and such. John Mount might have used this
for a Revolutionary War pension.

All entries 1819 and before are in one hand, the ones after that are
in several different writings.

A LOT of these children survived to adulthood to marry
(more than I would expect).

This family was in New York.
