John Henry Damron & Mary Elizabeth Melugin

Photocopies provided by Mariam C. Cropper. These pages appear to be from the same Bible, two pages for births and one for deaths. Since most of the entries in the same hand are not in chronological order, it can be assumed that most were made when the Bible was newly acquired then updated as events required, some deaths in the same hand but mostly by others. (Not shown in exact order. The births appear to be recorded in family groups.)
