FAMILY HISTORY TREASURES

Volunteer Notes:

Special Unique Findings or Bible Features:
This Bible appears to be originally owned by Joseph Irwin and his wife, Mary. On the first page of the family record, you can barely make out the names of Joseph, Mary and their 8 children. The writing is very faded, perhaps in pencil. Someone wrote additional things on that page later, which is evident by the darkness of the writing and the difference in handwriting. The marriage date in the top right corner is for Nancy Irwin and David Ungerford/Unkefer; although the OH County marriage records has a date of October 12 rather than October 17. (Note: I do not know why the surname was spelled UNGERFORD in the Bible, because all of the records I can find online use the spelling UNKEFER.) The names Nancy and William on the bottom of the page, are actually two of the children which are listed in the faded writing above.

Someone rewrote this list of parents and children on the third page of the family record in ink. I believe that it was daughter Nancy who wrote it, as she left herself off of the list but included herself on page two of the record – with her husband, David Ungerford/Unkefer and their children.

The Bible then seems to be passed on to Nancy Irwin Unkefer’s daughter, Mary Jane Unkefer Baughman, as her family’s info is written on the last page of the family record.

Joseph and Mary Irwin are buried at Paris Township Cemetery in Stark County, OH: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/98614575/joseph-irwin

Nancy Irwin and David Ungerford/Unkefer are buried at Liberty Cemetery in Stark County, OH: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/97877204/nancy-lou-unkefer

Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
This Bible appears to have been handed down to 3 generations in the past and I hope that it will once again be in the possession of a family member.
