This is the Bible of Beverly and Rosey Farinholt, then of Robert Ambrose Sutton and Rosey Berryman Taliferro Farinholt.
Bevery and Rosey are B and R, Robert Ambrose and Rosey Berryman Taliferro are RA and RBT. Several places are unreadable, I have put question marks where the reading is uncertain. If anyone would like a copy of the original so they can try to decipher it themselves, let me know.

RA and RBT Sutton are my g-g-g-grandparents. Rosey BTF Sutton was from Plain View, VA. They lived in King and Queen CO, VA. My parents have a portrait of Robert Ambrose (Captian Bob).
I have most of the information back this far but at this point things get fuzzy. I believe that Beverly's wife Rosey had the maiden name of Shackleford but I have no confirmation. Robert Ambrose's parents were Rowland Sutton III and Mildred Blackburn but I understand the records were burned during the Civil War. Can anyone give me more information?
