(This entry above, is written in pencil, whereas the other entries are written in "quill-pen ink" and the handwriting might be a bit different, either due to a different author or a different witting instrument.  The pencil is very hard to read as it is very light )

Personal thoughts from my view:

I would surmise by the announcement of the deaths of Betsy and Alanson in the same handwriting as all the other entries that the owner was one of their children.  Due to the beauty and flourish of the handwriting style, I assume it is a woman.  Based upon the order of entry in the marriage section where Cynthia's marriage in 1849 is the only one out of chronological order, and is the first one of the children marriages written, my guess is that it belonged to her.                 Kevin


There is also a page in the Bible, on the back of a lithograph that says:

George and Rosa Dishman married May 10, 1894

“frish chaild”

Ollie Lee Dishman born April 12, 1898

Mary Ette Dishman born July 31, 1900

Carl Robertson born April 18, 1902

Murl Gale born October 14, 1904


“by Mother” 

I would assume that either the Dishman family was a descendant, or someone who acquired the Bible later.  It appears, based upon the handwriting and the spelling that Rosa (who apparently entered the information) was not well educated. 


 Other :

There is a letter to a “Grandmother” about a church worship service from 1868 that is signed “Freeny”.  Beautiful "quill-pen" handwriting.

There is a “revival playbill” for a preacher named C.J. Baker for Sept 8-11 (no year given) in Garnett, KN. The playbill is very old.

There is a “Union Labor Ticket” from 1888 for Federal/State and County in the state of Kansas.
