Hi, i had a few minutes before a doctors appointment and went into an
antiques mall yesterday. I saw an old c1846 family bible and started
looking in it. Curious, I wrote down a couple of names. written in
old script inside the bible was a lot of family history but I didn't
have time to write all of it down or thumb through the entire book but
I did write down a couple of names to include

7, 1797; the bible was owned by Wiliam D. McBee born March 19,
