Bible of George Kellogg and Lavinia Otis Dauchy

The handwriting in the original Bible is not always legible, although an attempt has been made to transcribe all names in the Bible record. Although the pages are labeled Births, Marriages, Deaths and Memoranda, the information on the page may or may not match the page title; for instance, there are deaths noted on the births page. The transcription is an exact transcription of the original Bible record.
