Mitman Bible Pages
These pages were separated from the Bible, so the
date of the Bible is unknown. There is only one sheet,
with writing on both sides, and I suspect it was separated
from the other genealogy page(s). There is also a pin
hole where something was pinned to the sheet but
removed, all before I got the page.
This page is partially written in German, and I have probably
made many mistakes in that part of the transcript because
I am unfamiliar with the language. PLEASE view the original
before using this information.
This page is also partially typeset. The entry was not typed
a typewriter -- it is too uneven for that.
This family appears to have been from far eastern Pennsylvania,
from the information I can glean from Internet sources that match
this Bible. -- UPDATE --
"Here's what I know about that specific page. Feietta,
Minnie Johnson, Ellen
Hankey, Clara Stump and Pauline Forker are all sisters. They were the
daughters of John J. Mitman from Hanover Township, Lehigh County,
Pennsylvania. They all were members of Christ's Church in Schoenersville
PA. To get your bearings Schoenersville is a small crossroad near Lehigh
Valley Airport in the Easton, Allentown, Bethlehem area of the Lehigh Valley
in PA." -- from Earl Voorhees. Thanks, Earl!
