The following is a transcription of the marriages, births and deaths of loved ones which were recorded on the pages of the family Bible of Josephine Wingfield Davis (1842-1899) and William Paschal Henry, Sr. (1836-1912). This couple is buried in the Murray Cemetery north of Rockdale.

This list was prepared from photocopies of the tattered and torn originals. As of February 1999, the whereabouts of the original Bible (or the pages from it) is unknown. It is believed that the family heirloom was in the possession of Miss Laura Hamilton of Rockdale, Milam County, Texas at the time these copies were made.
