In Reply to: Would like to hear from any Hartsfields In Ga.,Tn.,Al.,Ar.,Ms., Fl. and La.. by Daniel Olive of 644

The book "Hartsfields of America" by Nell Clover (1972?) shows the James & Nancy (Olive) Hartsfield Bible record (on pages 168 and 169. The handwriting is identical for all entries through 1830 as if written at a single sitting. The entries from 1831 onward appear to be entered one by one. Six columns are shown. The first and second contain birthdates for James and Nancy's children. The third and fourth show the birthdates of James' siblings and Nancy Olive's siblings. The fifth and sixth show a few deaths.

James Hartsfield, son of Richard Hartsfield, was born October 16th 1790.
Nancy Hartsfield, wife of James Hartsfield, was born October 24th 1796.
