This posting is directed to any descendant of Othniel Hurin (Seth, Ebenezer, Hugh) born MaHurin, on 10 Jan 1759 at Morris County, NJ, died 4 Feb 1813, Warren County, OH, who married Bethia St. John (1774-1831) in 1794. Othniel is the brother of Eli and Silas (Ma)Hurin.
I am seeking to locate the "Family Bible" said to have belonged originally to OTHNIEL HURIN and last known to be in the possession of Miss Edith Florence Barker (1893-1967) of Plainfield, Indiana in 1949.
The bible contains 5 pages of birth and death records dated between 1729 and 1831 which Capt. Francis Harding Hurin made copies in 1949 while visiting Miss Barker when working on his Hurin-Huron Family publication. In checking w/ the Plainfield Library and other local sources, including a nephew of Miss Barker, I have not found any person or organization that has any knowledge of the bible.
My interest in the location and/or owner of the Bible is to get copies of these 5 pages of records for my daughter as part of "proof of lineage" on her DAR application for Seth MaHurin as one of her Patriot Ancestors.
Should anyone know of location of this bible and who to contact please let me know by way of this posting or direct E-mail.
