There is a much older Family Record page that obviously came from another bible. It was folded and is in very delicate condition. It is apparently from the bible of William Richard Merril, father of William Campbell Merrill, owner of this bible. It reads as follows –
William Merril, the son of Richard Merril, was born October 9th 1806.
Sallyan Wallace, the Daughter of Moses Wallace, was born September the 17th, 1807.
They were united together in Marriage August 2, 1828
Their Children were Born as follows, to wit –
1st Richard, Born April the 15th, Ano Domini 1829

Here are photos of William and Anna Hartshorn Merrill and Milford James and Bernice Leah Merrill Hulslander. I don't know if you want to post them together. Your choice.
I have the Merrill-Hartshorn Bible transcribed and will send in a separate email. There is one page much older that appears to be from the Merrill-Wallace Bible.
