The Western Maryland Genealogy publishes source records relating to the counties of Western Maryland. In Vol 4 # 2 Apr 1988 p 57 is a short article on a KRISE family bible. Here is the article.
KRISE Bible record: J Harold & Virginia Miller This family record in the Henry Krise Bible (Nurnberg, 1755) is from the papers of Ethel Close Buckey (1880-1962) of Baltimore. Mrs. Buckey, born in Rocky Ridge, Md., was a daughter of Albert & Mary Estelle (Krise) Close. She was a noted genealogist who served for several years as president of the Krise Kindred reunion. The Bible was given by Jacob Krise, last surviving child of Abraham Krise (1771-1846), who lived on the tract Emmittsburg, to Franklin and Marshall College Historical Library, from which these dates were translated from German script. The heading states: Johan Hendrick Kreiss, 1760 – his book.
Johan Hendrick married Maria Eiser (superscript ‘in’), now named Kreiss, 10 Jan 1760. Children Maria Catharina, b 17 Oct 1761; Johannes, b 5-1762 (sic); Peter, b 3 Nov 1763, bp 9 July 1764; Henrich, b 3 July 1766; George, b 3 May 1769; Abraham, b 25 Sept 1771; Daniel, b 4 Dec. 1773; Catharine, b 26 May 1776; Elizabeth, b 10 April 1778; John George, b 30 June 1779; Susanna, b 29 April 1782.
