NESTER Family Bible, Berks Co. Pennsylvania


A fine old 1800's family Bible that belonged to William and Caroline Mest Nester who married in 1878 in Boyertown, Berks County, Pennsylvania. There were two old paper items between the pages that may have been some sort of Holy Cards. Both in German and one of them a very colorful one that bears the date April 18, 1832, perhaps recording a birth or baptism. There is a family register section with a lot of family information in it. Bible is not in great shape as one might expect for an article this old.

William and Caroline had children named Daniel Henry, Caroline Agnes, Clara Nora, Jonathan Llewellyn, Menorva Hettie, Hannah Sumiah, Mary Emma, and Elsie Angelina.
