Fosdick Bible Pages

These are Bible pages loose from the Bible, so the date of the
Bible they came from is unknown. It was difficult to determine
if it was a deparate Bible -- this page (front and back) was carefully
sewn into the Davis Bible and during my initial examinations I
thought it was part of that Bible, with the information copied from
another Bible.

I have since decided this is the original page and not a copy, and it
was removed from its original Bible and sewn into this Bible (the
Bible of the daughter). The Bible it currently exists in is the Holy
Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments, Elam Bliss, New York,

This page is similar to those used to prove birth and death before
government provided certificates. It would not surprise me that Silas
was a Rev War veteran and this was removed from the original
to provide evidence for a pension.

It appears this family originated in Oyster Bay, New York.

These pages and Bible were transcribed by and in possession of
Tracy St. Claire,
