State of North Carolina - Warren County

This day personally appeared before me a Justice of the Peace for the County and State above written. Ransom AYCOCK of the said County who being first duly sworn according to Law, testifies and says -That the ages of the children of his father Abner AYCOCK & his mother Sarah AYCOCK were registered in the family Bible by his brother Henry AYCOCK who is now dead. This affiant further testifies that the family Bible with the entries of the ages of the children was after the death of his father sold by this affiant as his executor and was purchased by John SHAW husband of my sister Mary and has been in her posesion from the time of the sale in 1823. until a few days since when it was delivered to this affiant by his sister for the purpose of establishing the ages of the children of his father & mother. this affiant knows that the entries are in the proper hand writing of his Brother Henry AYCOCK and were made he is confident as much as forty years since. The reason why the entries were made by my Brother was that neither my father or mother could write and after my Brother was taught to write he made the entries according to the direction of my father. Given under my hand this 15th. day of Nov. 1838.   Ransom Aycock
