Odden Family Bible, New York

Odden Family Bible

This Bible is a bit of a mess - the inside page has what appears to be an inscription dated 1839, but there are so many entries written in different hands above and even over it, that it is hard to tell what goes with what!

This is what I think is the inscription, and probably the first item entered in the Bible

1839

Then we have a page with the printed Title of the Bible, and once again, a series of scribbled notations in different handwriting:

19th Century family bible belonging to the John Kempton Cobb family.

The bible itself is King James version, published in 1845 by Luther Roby of Concord, NH. Contains both Old and New Testaments, plus Apocrypha, illustrated with several detailed etchings.

Of interest to the COBB family is the Family Record section between the two testaments.

Births:
Harriet H. Cobb (b. 1842)
Alice E. Cobb (b. 1844)
Laura Cobb (b. 1845)
Lemuel Cobb (b. 1847)
John H. Cobb (b. 1849)
Sarah F. Cobb (b. 1851)

Eugene H. Cobb (b. 1856)

Deaths:
John H. Cobb (d. 1858)
Harriet Cobb (d. 1904)
Lemuel Cobb (d. 1910)

The last entry is for Lemuel Cobb. There are also newspaper clippings which identify this family as being of John K. Cobb. John K. Cobb was born in 1818 in Plymouth, MA, and married Harriet Rider, also of Plymouth, in 1845.

This family was found in the 1860 census in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts and included:

Name Age in 1860 Estimated Birth Year Birthplace Gender
