Heartshorne Bible


This Bible record was transcribed from the Pennsylvania Genealogical
Magazine, Volume 7, Number 1, Page 40-1, March 1918.

The preface to a group of Bible records, including this one, reads:

To the flotsam and jetsam of book sales and the old bookstand, which,
some fifteen or more years ago, occupied the southeast corner of Second
and Walnut Streets, came the Bibles from which the following records
were copied. Whither these Bibles were carried on the tide waters of chance
will, collectively, never be known, but the entries therein, herewith
preserved as memorials to the human trinity, father, mother and child, may
be of future value to those genealogically inclined.
