    Text SIN 12. “Family Record” from the Nathaniel and Julia Banta Moore Family Bible, Holy Bible (New York, J. C. Riker, 1844). The “Family Record” is located before the New Testament, page 575. The Bible is bound in tan leather with a tooled design and gilt border on the cover. It probably passed to their son, J. M. W. Moore, and then their grandson, Frederick Moore. It may have then passed to Catherine Liggett and at her death was sent to Fred Banta. Presently held by Brent Banta (2007). The Bible measures 9” x 11 1/2”. It is bound in calf with an embossed gold border.

    The first birth entry is that of George Moore, 1844. The marriage and death records of Nathaniel and Julia were written after 1901, perhaps by Miranda Banta Moore, the wife of J. M. W. Moore.

    Births were entered in 3 groups, each group in a different hand. This handwriting is different from that of the person who entered the marriage and death data. Some deaths are entered as they occurred, others are compiled. The most recent deaths are from 1944-1962, written in yet a different hand. (Perhaps by Catherine Liggett?)

    Enclosed with the Bible was a 2-page genealogy chart of the Brown family, showing the ancestors of Sarah Brown, Nathaniel Moore’s mother. See SIN 24.
