O'Hair Bible Pages

These are Bible pages loose from the Bible, so the date of the
Bible they came from is unknown. It is approximately early to mid
19th century.

Jesse O'Hair and Ella O'Hair and still living in 1880 for the federal
census in Coles County, IL. They have Jesse in at age 82 -- making him
born in 1798 -- not 1828 as in this Bible. Ella is 67 in that document
-- putting her birth supposedly in here -- making her supposedly born in
1813, not 1833. Interestingly, the children's births are consistent
with our Bible pages, making Ella 59 years old when she gave birth to
Evaline in the federal census (and 39 in our Bible pages, I assume
more accurately). What is going on here?

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