CAPES – BROOKS – SACKETT – BELL – ORCHARD – DICKMAN – PILLOIS – BONNIWELL – BROWN – LEWIS – WEEKS, Family Bible Record – 1829 Bible

This family bible starts with William and Sally (BROOKS) CAPES and places mentioned are Boston, Linco[l]nshire, England – New York City – Williamsburgh LI, NY – Erie, PA and Darien, CT.

This bible was purchased from a rare book dealer in 1989.

Title Page:
The Holy Bible, Contatining the Old and the New Testaments: Together with the Apocrypha: Translated Out of the Original Tongues, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised. With Canne’s Marginal Notes and References. To which are added, An Index, An Alphabetical Table of All the Names in the Old and New Testaments, with their significations; Tables of Scripture Weights, Measures, and Coins, &c.

Cooperstown, [NY]: Stereotyped, Printed and Published by H. & E. Phinney, and sold by them at their book-stores, and by the booksellers generally in the United States. – 1829.

There is an inscription on the front flyleaf that is somewhat difficult to read but this is as I make it out:

Norton Conn.
Jan 1916
Formerly owned by your great grand parents

And by your great aunt Harriett CAPES BELL.
