[Minion cc. 12mo. 1830.

The following information was from the Bible  and entered directly to the computer by Kenneth E. Branch.

Note: The following was written with a different pen.

Virginia F. Branch was May the 9, 1854

Mahala Jane Branch was born August the 22 1857

Loria Alles Branch was born March the 20 1860
Note: This is the same as the Laura Allice but is the best I could make out from what was written in the bible. It was written with the same pen as the early names which were entered.

John Branch was born July 21, 1810.

Note: I believe this first part was actually entered by John or Polly Branch, probably John from the looks of the handwriting. This was all at the front of the bible.

The following was located in the section between the old testament and the new testament where there were some blank pages to write on.

This is the best I could do with it.
