Heverly - Bitts / Betts  Bible

These pages were separated from the Bible, so the date of the Bible is unknown. It was acquired from a man in New York who saved the genealogical information from Bibles that were being thrown away.

This is obviously a family record from a Bible. I can see  the very faint impression of a New Testament title page against the deaths page, but no amount of squinting on my part has revealed a publisher or a date.-

Betsy is referred to with the surname "Bitts" on one page and "Betts" on another, both very clear.

From what I gather, the place names below are townships in Bradford County, Pennsylvania.

Shaver - Woughter  Bible

The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Cooperstown, N.Y., H.& E. Phinney, 1833. Old Testament
title page missing; information is from the New Testament title page. Equal to Hills #817.

Time has not been kind to this Bible. The covers are both entirely missing, and the spine is in tatters. The first pages are
missing, the first page that is present is the first page of Genesis.

Next, it is not hard to see why this Bible was not kept in the family. It looks like there wasn't much family left!

I am going to guess New York for this Bible. 1) The Bible itself was made in New York, and in 1833 they didn't travel
too far. 2) In searching for people with the last name  "Woughter", they all were in New York. 3) in Owego, Tioga County, there is a Baptist church that had both Shaver and Woughter parishioners.
