Babcock And Swift Family Bible Published In 1826

The first name listed is Elisha G. Babcock with her date of birth given as December 1st, 1799. The names and births, marriages and deaths continue well into the mid-1900s in this family bible that was published in 1826 by Daniel D. Smith of New York.

The condition appears to be fairly good, with a few detached pages that are included with the book. According to the seller, the bible was owned by the Swift family of Wiscasset, Maine, and would obviously be a treasure for someone researching the surnames Babcock or Swift in that area.

The eBay Item Number is 300379593228 if you want to take a closer look. As stated, there are several pages of family history, with names and dates written in the margins.
