Bible: James Speer his book 2th day of Janary 1833

I have come into possession of a Bible belonging to James Pleasant Speer Sr. Inside the front cover is written “James Speer his book 2th day of Janary 1833”. Below that is written “Nellie E Speer” . The bible is very worn and fragile. There are four Family Record pages. There are two of their children, that I did not know about. Simson T Speer b. 24 Oct 1823 and Andrew Jackson Speer b. 4 Jan 1837. The real puzzler is the first line on the first page: “James Speer the son of John Speer was borne the 11th day of October 1790. Penelope Speer the daurter of John Jacks was born 15th day of October 1793.” All but a few researcher has James’ father as William Speer, John Speer’s brother. I have seen a listing on ancestry.com where they list John Speer & Elizabeth Steelman having a son named James b. abt. 1792. I was very shocked at the first line in the record and would welcome input from serious direct line descendents. I will only share these pages with those that have proven lineage at this time.
