Wright Bible

This page was acquired individually, without any other
items to add evidence. Family Records like these were
copied out of Bibles and carried like birth certificates
to prove age and such, often for pension and other
government applications. This might have been submitted
for a Revolutionary War pension, as it fits for those

It looks like it was all written at the same time, after 1828
which is the last date. My opinion.

Rootsweb gedcoms place this family in Massachusetts.
