This was on another list. I thought the slave names listed at the end of the Bible record might benefit someone on this list.

The following is a partial transcription of the marriages, births and deaths which were recorded on the pages of the family Bible of Josephine Wingfield (DAVIS) and William Paschal Henry, Sr. (my maternal great-great-grandparents).

The names I am leaving off are the children and grand children of Josephine and Wm. Paschal.

This list was prepared from photocopies of the tattered and torn originals. As of October 1998, 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 photocopies were made. Please contact me if you have a connection to any of these names.
