The Stinson Bible Records

Stinson Family Bible Records

Submitted by
Jim Stinson

My grandfather, Edgar Wiseman Stinson, moved his family from Sumner County, TN to Texas in the late 1890s. Among his artifacts that were passed on to me were some very old, very fragile, and very faded record pages from an old family Bible that no longer exists. These records mention several Sumner County surnames that may be of interest to researchers. The following birth, death, and marriage records are handwritten on these pages from the old Bible. I do not know who the writers were or when the entries were written. The original spelling is retained.

James O. Stinson
Austin, TX
