HESS, GILLHAM, SIMM, EDSALL, KRAUSE, BELLION
I am a member of the Historical Society of Dayton Valley (Nevada) and we've been reorganizing old books donated to our society over the years. One old Bible was found, missing its cover and frontispiece (and the identity of its owner) but having handwritten notes of deaths and a few births. We would like to get the information to anyone interested and possibly return the Bible to a family member. Here is a full transcript of the handwritten records:
Full text of handwritten family record, all but one written in heavy blue ink. Written continuously on printed page labeled “Family Record.” I’ve spaced the entries one per line but they are written continuously. I added comments in brackets.
