Weeks Bible Records

These pages were removed from the original bible
and placed in a scrapbook compiled by Theresa
Louise MARTENS. Theresa penned at the bottom of
this page "Written by Dorcas Weeks, great-grandmother
of Josephine Martens". There are about four
different handwritings in the bible pages. I have
transcribed it as closely as possible, and the
capitalizations and strange date abbrieviations
are in the original.

The scrapbook has many other documents, letters,
naturalizations, photographs and other things
pertaining to these people and others. I acquired
this book at auction and have no information
about its history. The MARTENS family came
from Germany in the mid-1800s. All documents
pertaining to the WEEKS family come from
different places in New Jersey.

People with links directly to this family should
contact me directly for more information. Theresa
translated a longish history of the MARTENS
and has listed many more birth & death dates
for the MARTENS and WEEKS.
