Family Bible: Dorn, Barrows New York 1846

This old bible is in poor condition but the family genealogy is exceptional. Dates run from 1814 through the 1970's. Surnames included are Dorn, Barrows, Daman, Walpole, Van Buren, Little, Bradshaw, Dela Mater, Farrell, Holton Chauder Winifred,, and Waddell

There are over 60 entries in the bible and many more facts on another 4 handwritten sheets of paper. There are also other artifacts in the bible including three New York State pass grade certificates from 1906 and 1908 - these are for Eleanor De La Mater from the town of Florida New York.

All this information springs from the marriage of William B Dorn of the town of Duanesburgh ( Duanesburg ) NY and Martha J Barrows of Dunnsville NY (Dunnsville Ny is very near Princetown, NY in Schenectady County) who were married in 1846. There is a marriage cert in the bible for these two.

Willam B. Dorn of Duanesburgh
Martha J. Barrows of Dunnesville
married 25 November 1846 at Dunnesville
