NOTE: The following names and dates are written on pieces of paper from a family Bible. The Bible itself went to another side of the family, but my father was given the pages on which were recorded names and dates of births, deaths, marriages. The ink spread in some places, so parts of it are difficult to read. I will type everything out that is written, but I will put parentheses around the dates I cannot read clearly and around comments.
