Amrheine Bible Pages

These pages were separated from the Bible, so the
date of the Bible is unknown. They look to be from the

middle of the 19th century.

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,

Joseph Reitzel and his wife Lavinia are found in the 2nd
Ward, Columbia, Lancaster County, PA in the 1880 US
Census. Lavinia Amrheine must have first married John
Hippey (1834-1873) and then Joseph Reitzel. Lavinia's
children with Hippey are also in the household.
