I recently came into posession of a bible which I bought at a local thrift store. It's falling apart but within the pages, on the back of the first page of Psalms is listed in quill pen writing, the history of a family with the surname Page. Also contained in the bible are random papers, including an obituary:
Marie, the 5 year old daughter od Mr and Mrs W.S. Page of Cool Springs, died yesterday afternoon after an ilness with diptheria...
the obit. goes on to say Marie was Mr. and Mrs. Page's only daugher, and will be buried at Fifth Creek church...
If anyone is looking for any of this information regarding this family, or knows anything about them and would be so kind as to send it my way, it would be much appreciated. It would be ideal if I could find direct family who would like to have the bible, but if that is not possible, I would like to know more about this family and why such an important part of thier history was in a thirft store for a quarter.
Full list from the page before Psalms-
Stephen Page married Elizabeth on 28? January 1832
Frances Page was born 11th of November 1832
James Bentley Page was born 11th of February 1835
Bedford Jackson Page was born Sept? 18th of 1836
William Whitehead Page was born 17th Novemebr 1838
Elizabeth Susan Page was born 25th February, 1840
Also in the bible are old newspaper clippings and personal notes.
