Transcribed by Suzanne English Walker, custodian of the Bible, and GKBopp
The Bible was published in 1832; the entry dated 1830 was not made at the time of the birth.
The entries for Lindsey and his wife were, of course, made after the fact. Lindsey's date, the 15 " day, and Anabell are as shown above. It appears Lindsey's middle initial was originally entered as H and later W written over it (different pen/hand).
Josaphine and Brackenridge are the spellings in the Bible.
Entries for twins Lindsey and Bell are as shown above, March th 12 1854.
Rider is the only in-law entered on the birth page (handwriting matches Rider marriage entry).
Not shown above is a flourish under the th in a few of the entries that looks like " (this also under the nd in Sarah's 22nd). There are fancier flourishes, not shown above, under the birth entry for the first child and under the entries for Lindsey and Anabell (see image). Lines drawn between birth entries are also not shown above (see image).
Birth entries in the Bible are numbered, as shown above. Periods are entered after each number in the above, but a few of the numbers in the Bible were without a period.
My database includes over 1,200 descendant related entries for the family of Elisha & Sarah Wharton English; the first five generations are at The English Plantation.
