Lenawee Bibles and Bible Records

Family records from Lenawee County, Michigan

Includes a few marriage records, some with images.

Many Bible records were made before the official recording of births, weddings & deaths occurred at the various County seats. Traveling into a County Court House by horse to see that a birth, death or marriage was recorded was difficult. Bible records are indeed a resource of great importance to family researchers.
Please read the information at the bottom of this blog page carefully.

This blog is replacing the web pages previously stored at geocities.com. Since geocities will be closed down soon I had to come up with a method of keeping these records online that was easy and reasonably fast to upload. The formatting is not special, but, at this time I am only interested in keeping the records available to family researchers.

Good luck in your research, and apologies for the lack of format.

Please use the "Labels" list at the bottom of the blog to search for your names. By clicking on a surname that interests you it will take you to the blog page or pages that contain that name.

Wilcox Bible and Marriage Certificate Images

NOTE: This Bible is NOT part of the collection of the Lenawee County Historical Society, The Adrian Public Library or any other research facility in Lenawee County Michigan. This is a privately owned Bible and the information was kindly shared with us by Richard Welch. Since sharing this with us, Richard has changed his email, and attempts to reach him have failed. Since Geocities is shutting down in about a week, we have decided to bring the records to the blog so they are still available to researchers, but, we have no contact information for Richard.


Names are a bit hard to read, they are: Horace Wilcox of Palmyra, Michigan and Amanda McCourtie of Woodstock Michigan.
Married 24th December 1865
Witnesses: Doty McCourtie and Mary McCourtie
Married by: H. J. Baldwin, Justice of the Peace.

Four pages from the Bible were provided by Richard, the four pages are for Births, Marriages, Deaths and a Memoranda page. An additional page of records from the Bible was edited by us, due to the birth dates and privacy matters. This partial extra page is found on the Memoranda page.



Clicking on the image will open a new window with a larger image, to return, click your back button.







Richard also provided one additional page of records, all of which were birth records, many of those were dated after 1940. Bowing to concerns over birth dates and names and security concerns for stolen identities, most of the additional page is not included on these web pages. Following are the only 2 dates we felt safe posting here.

Stephen Angell and Stephen Hoag Bibles, Deeds, Press Articles and Misc. Family Records

This entire file was found in the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives in a Hollinger box in a file labeled Angell Family. Upon close examination it appears there are two Bible records here, one of Stephen Angell and one of Stephen Hoag. The presentation of the records shows clearly where the Stephen Hoag Bible records begin, but does not seem to indicate where they stop. As it was quite unclear we have decided to present both as we found them, one file, one presentation. It is the researchers responsibility to unravel the mystery.

Charles Allen and Fannie Babcock, Marriage License and Certificate of Marriage

Marriage Certificates of Lenawee County

Most of these marriage records or certificates were found at the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives. In most cases they were found in a series of files stored in Archival Safe Hollinger boxes, filed by family surnames. I am NOT researching these families and only have posted them to help other researchers who may not have access to the Museum. Good luck in your research.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Found at the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives, in a Hollinger box, file labeled “Charles Allen”. This is a handwritten document, but it is unknown who actually wrote it. One could surmise it was written by the Justice of the Peace that married this couple. Where it appeared that the letters were capitalized, they were so typed in this transcription of the record.

About Me

Lenawee County, Michigan, United States
I am a volunteer in Lenawee County, Michigan. I have posted these records for the use of Family Researchers. Acknowledge and thank many, including Charlie, and several typists. Thanks to Diane & Chuck Oslund who sponsored these records for many years. Recently I added another blog to this series, for Funeral cards and other memorials.

Lenawee, In Memory Of

If you like Lenawee Bibles and Bible Records, you may be interested in Funeral or memorial cards which can be found at Lenawee, In Memory Of.
Please read the following information VERY CAREFULLY! It contains a lot of disclaimers about the Bibles and Bible Records of Lenawee County, Michigan.

First, I am NOT researching these families. I am posting these records on behalf of the Lenawee County Historical Society and other research facilities and groups of Lenawee County Michigan.

You will find records from a few Bibles that were housed at the Adrian Public Library, the records of these Bibles were transcribed by the Lenawee County Family Researchers and have been published in their newsletter. Some of the Bibles once found at the Adrian Public Library have disappeared. It is not known if they are in the repair facility, if they have walked, or simply been misplaced in the Historical Room.

Next, NOT all these records are Bible Records, sometimes they are family records, recorded, but not necessarily from a Bible!

Next, I have made a distinction between Bibles and Bible Records. At the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives there are a number of old Bibles. The actual Bibles are owned by the Society. The records are fading, FAST! I transcribed the records to the best of my ability. It took a long time, and frequently I had to use a bright light and a magnifying glass to read the records. These Bibles are too fragile to photocopy or scan. The inscriptions are too faded to photocopy or scan. The only way to save these records for future researchers was to transcribe them. There may be errors in my transcriptions, and I apologize in advance. I did the best I could with what I was working with.

IF, I have described the entry as a Bible Record, then this record was NOT copied from an actual Bible at the Lenawee County Historical Society. Bible Records refers to a set of records found in the Archives Room in Hollinger boxes (a Hollinger box is an archival safe storage box). We believe that a majority of these hand written transcribed Bible and Family Records were originally copied by Harriet Cole Clark Bowen and the Adrian DAR during the 1930's and 1940's. Other records have been donated to the society.

All possible care was taken in typing the Bible Records, no matter what form they were originally in, actual Bibles, or handwritten copied records. We are sorry for any typing errors, we cannot be responsible for errors in the transcriptions we did not do ourselves.

Comments with parenthesis have usually been added by typist to help researchers in some way, and not part of the original record.

No photocopies or scans of the actual Bibles are available. We fully realize the value of such a record, but at this time we are not allowed to do such copies.
