Abigail Borton b.1807 Quaker Family Bible

Surnames: Borton, Duell, Massure, Bennett, Sloop
Through a stranger's generosity I have come into possession of Abigail Borton's family Bible, given to her by her father, Richard Borton, in 1833. I am attaching information for others who may be interested. I am descended from Sarah Duell, Abigail's daughter. The Bible had been in the possession of another daughter of Abigail, Phebe Duell. My ancestor, Sarah, had married Harrison Sloop. Phebe married Henry Massure, the Bible passed to her daughter Mary Bennett, then to her grandson Robert Bennett, who died childless. In the bible were small silhouettes, which remain unidentified.

Here are silhouettes found in Abigail Borton's Bible given to her in 1833. The silhouettes are unidentified, although I am fairly certain they must be members of Abigail's family. Any clues?
