1860 Prentiss Bible Details

This bible was donated to PrenticeNet by the Carroll County Genealogical Society (of Carroll Co., MD)


1860 Bible title page Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, printed in Philadelphia in 1860. Includes many pages of hand-written records. It looks like it was given to Henrietta Driggs by her grandmother (Reed). Henrietta Driggs was married to Andrew Morgan Prentiss (#280), son of Henry James (#203) and Sarah Prentiss. Henry was the son of Henry (#103) and Mary Prentiss. There are records that go back to Henry and Mary (aparently pages from other bibles). Henry was the son of Joshua (#52) and Grace. Joshua was the son of Joshua (#21), mentioned above. Joshua was the son of Henry (#9), who was the son of Solomon (#3), who was the son of Henry (#1).
