Samuel and Tabitha Langston Beck
Family Bible
Rabun Co., GA


This Bible is in the possession of Mr. Thad Bynum of Clayton, Georgia. He rescued it from the old Bynum House before it was torn down. The Bible is dated 1817 and was printed by Mathew Carey, No. 121, Chesnut-Street. The family records are on separate pages which were sewn or tacked into the book. The whole thing is extremely fragile; the leather cover is mostly gone, as is everything after Psalm LXXVIII. Additionally, in the family records, some portions are repeated two or more times. Here, I have sorted everything out as best I could so that each individual is named only once per event. This transcription is, therefore, not going to be in the order given in the family Bible. Photocopies are impossible to make due to the condition of the book. It is also impossible to tell when or by whom these records were written down.
