I have just been given copies of the pages from the Bible belonging to David & Mary MacIntire Eakin This shows who the children of David & Mary MacIntire Eakin are. (There are quite a few discrepancies on the genforum and WEBSITES, that show wrong information.)
Some show that David & Mary had a child Amanda Jane born 1838. Mary was 52 at that time, so it is highly unlikely. On the 1850 Jasper Co, Ms census, it shows an Amanda Jane Shepperd age 12 (would have been born 1838) living with them.
I have been given copies of the Bible pages from an Eakin researcher. No one knows where the original Bible is. If anyone would like copies, email me and I will scan them and email to you, or send you copies. Anyone from David & Mary's line is welcome to copies. Here is what it shows: (my notes in parenthesis)
