Flack Bible

This Bible was submitted by Penny G. Douglass .

This is transcribed from a photocopy of the original record, which I obtained in 1978 from the National Archives. The original Bible records were copied from the Flack family Bible and submitted to the Revolutionary War Pension Dept. by Nancy Flack as proof that she and James were married and had a family. She was granted a widows pension on her husbandís service and her original transcription of the Bible records are still part of the actual pension file housed at the National Archived in Washington DC.



** Transcription is as exact as I can get it**
