Mosby Family Bible, 1765 – 1896

MOSBY Family Bible Records, 1765-1896 - Powhatan Co. VA

This is a transcription of a photocopy of the MOSBY family 
Bible records from the Virginia State Library and Archives, 
Richmond, VA. There appear to be three separate sets of records, 
each having a distinctly different border pattern on the 
pages. The three sets are referred to as "A," "B" and "C." 

Set "A" consists of two pages with printed borders and the 
numbers 677 and 678 printed at the top center of each page. 
One page is headed "FAMILY RECORD" with two columns headed 
"BIRTHS" and the other, "FAMILY RECORD" with two columns for 
"MARRIAGES." They are badly folded with pieces missing from 
the right and left edges. Parts of the border and some of the 
entries are on the missing pieces. Missing entries on the 
"BIRTHS" page were recopied from the left column to the 
right column. 

The three pages of set "B" also have printed borders but are 
not numbered. Each page is headed "FAMILY RECORD" with two 
columns headed "DEATHS," "BIRTHS" and "MARRIAGES." One page has 
a piece of the border missing. 

Set "C" is two pages of handwritten entries with no borders 
or other printing.
