I found an old Bible at a book sale in Guilford County, NC very near the Alamance County line. The Bible measures about 5 X 7 and the copyright date is 1872. It is in very poor condition. The spine has been taped, but both the front and back covers have broken off. Written on the front flyleaf is Mary Catherine Wilson July 10th 18??.
The family record pages have come loose. They contain the following births:
Mary Catherine Wilson Born July 12 1862
Thomas Anderson Barnette Born October 5th 1859
Annie Lee Barnette Born September 27th 1894
Walter Wallace Barnette Born May 26th 1898
Helen Frances "McDade" Barnette Born March 30th 1904
There are 3 more names, but for privacy's sake I will not list them since all were born after 1930.
Items placed in the Bible include church offering envelopes for Stoney Creek Presbyterian Church, Burlington, NC, cross stitch pieces and several slips of paper with addresses written on them.
I would like to find a home for this Bible, so if you think it might be your family, please let me know.
