FAMILY HISTORY TREASURES

Volunteer Notes:

Special Unique Findings or Bible Features:
Most Polyglot Bibles from this time period came with the Apocrypha included but this Bible did not. The Carty family was probably Baptist based on the stories of some of Andrew’s sibling’s families. This type of Bible was sold by salesmen and not found in stores. Andrew’s name is listed as the first subscriber and it is he who probably sold Bibles to his neighbors and family members.

Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
This Bible was published in 1869. The latest date in the family record is the death of the youngest child in 1871. You can imagine the sorrow and grief the mother felt when filling in the births and deaths of her five deceased children all at once. She noted the length of each child’s life after she wrote the date of their deaths.
Elvira is spelled with an H in this record but in documents on Ancestry the H is left off.
