Does anyone know who now owns this particular Bible? It is an excellent record. The name "Swain" in the Bible should be "Swaim."
From a Bible, dated 1849copied as exactly as possible – some of it is hard to read.They had some imaginative spelling and grammar.

Retyped by John D. Hoff, III, (email@example.com) on 7 Jul. 2011.I do not remember where this Bible record came from or who owned the Bible at the time.I may have received it from Sybil (Swindell) Sayre of Alexandria, IN, or perhaps Mary Decker of Bloomington, IN.
There is also a Bible record for the family of Willis E. Swindell (See above/born 20 Aug. 1843).It has been published in “The Hoosier Genealogist,” Vol. 31, Number 1, March 1991, page 27.I have a xerox copy of the original which I believe I received, directly or indirectly, from Oscar F. Curtis of Bloomington, IN.He made the Bible record available to “The Hoosier Genealogist” for printing.
