Bible Record of Covington Hardy and Catherine Buford/Beuford of Lunenburg County, Virginia

Surnames: Hardy, Buford, Beuford,
I have seen several older posts about the bible of Covington Hardy and Catherine Buford/Beuford. It seems like I read one post that stated it was found in a “file cabinet.” I thank the person who found it and I am very happy to report that the bible page can be seen at the State Library of Virgina and I have found it online via their web site. I took my elderly mother to actually see the page/pages several years ago. The handwriting is beautiful and once Covington’s children are listed, the bible was passed on the John C Hardy, and his children are listed. The page/pages are very old, and very hard to read. At some point it looks like someone taped the page together. I have a copy of the page and I will provide a copy of the entire page. The hardest part to read are the years at the beginning of each line and I hope that I have each birth year correct, but they may not be 100%. I have tried hard to type this correctly, and I have followed the spelling of names as listed in this bible. If you descend from these people, a trip to the Virginia Library to see this page is very special. There was only one page that I found I could read. This page begins with a list of the children of Covington Hardy. The page then continues with a list of the children of John C. Hardy.
