Family Bible: Tarlton, Batson in Maine

An 1857 family Bible with four full pages of family records in it for the TARLTON and BATSON families.

These genealogical records are written out in ink, in longhand. They include marriage, birth and death records. Although most of the people named in these genealogy records have the family name Tarlton or Batson, other names included are:

POOLE, HALL, WILSON, NEAL, PETIGREW, HAYWARD, COLBATH (?), WEDGWORD, and CLOUTMAN.

Bible was found at a Maine estate auction, so the family it belonged to could be a Maine family. The name in the front of this vintage book is Georgia S. Prescott, whose estate auction this was. The publisher of this antique Bible is the American Bible Society.

The oldest marriage recorded in these family history records is that of Samuel Batson and Mary Neal, December 3rd, 1835.

The oldest birth recorded is Samuel Batson, Dec. 22d, 1813.

The oldest deaths are Abby C. Tarlton, Aug. 25th, 1858 and James W. Batson, Aug., 1845.
