Leonard Smith Bible, Part 2 - Amanuensis Monday

Thanks to John at Transylvanian Dutch who originated the Amanuensis Monday meme, providing a framework (and nudge) for transcribing family records, news clippings and other treasures.

Last September I photographed and transcribed a family record found in an 1832 Bible belonging to a great-granddaughter of Leonard and Elizabeth Jamison Smith of Allegany County, Maryland. This is the second part of the transcription.

The following material appears on a right page opposite the above page near the back of the Bible:

Transcriber’s notes:
The writing for this entry differs from the entries up to and including “Joseph”.

The record includes a hand drawn vertical line on the second page separating the Births and Deaths columns.

  1. These types of papers and Bibles are what I am missing from my stash of family related memorabilia. Enjoyed seeing yours Susan.
