PITTENGER Family Bible Record

Submitted by [email protected]


This record comes from the copies found in the Bible Record Files of the OGS Library.  The original bible was found in the possession of the owners of Red Star Antiques of Pavonia in the 1970's.  The owners had received the bible "with the house and business".  They were not in any way related to the Pittengers.  Nathaniel Pittenger's 4th great-grandson is looking for this bible.  If anyone has any information regarding it please email at this address.  ([email protected])

Nathaniel Pittenger moved to Richland County in 1815 with his father Peter, Mother Nancy and siblings (see book- From the Annals of Richland County, pp.29-31, "The Old Settlers Meeting".  They settled in the area of Weller/Franklin Townships and we heavily involved in area farming, religion, business and politics.  Nathaniel and Elizabeth are buried behind the Old Pavonia Church.  Peter and Nancy are buried in the Osbun-Pittenger Revolutionary War Cemetery on SR545.  All entries in this bible are written in Nathaniel's beautiful script, I have copied them in the same order as they appear in the bible and have made no corrections or changes.
The bible is a "copy of the Holy Bible containing the Old & New Testaments translated out of the original tongues and with the former translations diligently compared and revised."  It was published in Philadelphia by A.J. Holman & Co., No. 930 Arch Street in the year 1874.
Inside the bible is a keepsake marriage license that reads: This is to certify that Nathaniel Pittenger of West Windsor, Richland County, Ohio and Elizabeth C. Osbun of West Windsor, Richland County, Ohio were united together in Holy Matrimony on the sixth day of Dec. in the year of our Lord one thousand and eighteen hundred and thirty two in the Presence of I Osbun & Family, H Pittenger Esq. J.P.
