Howard Family Bible record

Submitted by:  Bob Blankenship


Among the records of a Thomas Howard who moved in to Carter

from Bath County.  The actual Bible is somewhere in Missouri or Kansas.


A note attached to the record reads:

“The top sheet shows the exact copy that came to me several years ago.  By who it was copied I don’t know.  I understood it was done by a descendant who was researching the family and went to Ralls Co., MO, where my g.g.g. gfr. Thomas Howard’s son Thomas J. Howard came about 1851.  The old record was last known to be in the hands of a later descendant living in Ralls County.

“I typed an exact copy and added all additional information that I had gathered on the family.  Isn’t it too bad that the person who copied the original record did not add the date copied, some reference to the old book, etc.  That would have added the necessary authenticity that we need for a proof source.”
