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.

Scott Family Records

Found at the Lenawee County Historical Society Museum Archives, in a Hollinger box, file labeled “Scott”.

This record is entirely hand written, some of the letters are faded, making transcription difficult at times. Anyone interested in this record would be advised to obtain a copy from the Lenawee County Historical Society. From the fact that there is a date of 1812, and other information that resembles that of a publisher, it is thought that this data was copied from a Bible.

In early 2008 we were contacted by Wystan Stevens, Ann Arbor (Washtenaw County, Michigan) Historian, about Austin Robinson. He has kindly shared a photo of Austin's headstone. Austin is buried in the Adrian Center Cemetery, Adrian Township, Lenawee County, Michigan. His headstone is of specific interest due to the illustration of the events surrounding Austin's death, which was caused by falling from a wagon, on his head! Wystan's web page discussing Austin's headtone can be found here. Thank you for sharing this very interesting bit of Lenawee history with us.

Extracted Records from Pope Bible

Found at the Lenawee County Historical Society Archives in a Hollinger box, file labeled Pope. The record appears to have been typed two times, most of the information being exactly the same. Many of the records found in Hollinger boxes were typed on onionskin paper which was being reused. For example, an index for the Harriet Cole Clark Bowen DAR cemetery books (Gravestones of Lenawee County, ca 1930-40) was typed, then discarded. In an attempt to save money, this discarded sheet was turned over and a bible record was typed on the reverse side. One difficulty is that of bleed through. The other is that as in this case, if the typist made an error or a series of errors, he/she would have to retype the entire page. It is believed that is what happened with this bible record, that the typist felt there were enough errors that it was appropriate to retype, or that the typist discovered that the bleed through was severe and decided to retype. In this record Page 2 and Page 4 are almost total duplication. We will combine the two. Anyone interested in this family, and bible records, are strongly urged to obtain a copy of this typed extraction from the Lenawee County Historical Society.

Note to researchers:  Please remember that this entire record was handwritten and was extremely hard to read.  We have been contacted in the past by a Corson family biographer who assures us that the name Tiesler in our transcriptions is most likely Feister, especially that of Jacob Tiesler Courson Oct. 30, 1917 who the Corson family biographer feels "almost certainly" Jacob Feister Courson.  We have not done any further research on this family, but pass on this information for family researchers to follow up on.  Good luck in your research and thank you to the Corson family biographer that shared this information with us.

RAISIN LOSES ANOTHER PIONEER.
1886

(Date above, written in by hand)

Clark Hall was born in Norway, N.Y., in 1809 and in 1832 he married Harriet S. Treat by whom he had two children now living. He came to Mich. In May 1836 and located a farm. Hardships were many, having at times to sift the bran for bread-making; meat was plentiful as deer of turkey could be killed any morning.

They buried five children in 12 years, and their dau. Semantha Ives, died in August, 1872, leaving Hosea and Seloma E. Jackson to Mourn his loss. Mr. Hall’s first wife died Mar. 6, 1867 of consumption. He then had his sister, Elsie Brown, come and keep-house for him. In Dec. he returned to the home of his childhood and there married Libbie Thornton, and brought her back with him; they lived together untill 1873 when she wished to go east and visit her children by a former husband. While there she sickened and died and was buried by her first husband.

Mr. Hall then had to call on his sister Elsie again to keep-house for him untill Nov. 29, 1874 when he married Ellen Hawker of Tecumseh. They lived together ten years when death again took his wife, Ellen, Oct. 20, 1884. Not wishing to live with his children, Mr. Hall called upon the sister of his last wife, Lydia Clark, to make a home for him untill his death, Oct. 8, 1886 of palsey. The funeral was held from the house, on the 10th, Richard Harkness of the Friends Church officiating, having been near neighbors for years. He was laid to rest between his first and last wives in North Adrian cemetery.

Grave Desecration

An unfortunate experience came to the family of Nathan Marlatt, when it was discovered that his grave in North Adrian cemetery had been robbed of the body. It was so clumsily accomplished that it was known at once. Officers at once went to Ann Arbor to investigate the loss among the bodies used in the discecting room of the University Medical School. It was identified immediately, as it had not been put in the pickling vat, and the body returned to the family.

Not only was the body discovered but parties were found who had seen in delivered at the receiving room of the Medical College and a discription of the thieves obtained, the livery stable found where the horse and wagon were hired; the discription fitted certain young student, Emery Watts, and a helper, Frank Norton of Adrian. They were arrested and the former sentanced to two years at Ionia, and the latter to one year at the same place. (1880)

The balance of the records included here are obviously not bible records. No indication of where the information was found is made. Indeed there are references to page numbers that do not appear to make sense, so we ask, page numbers to what?? Due to the nature of these records we will not attempt to indicate which are typed and which are handwritten. The handwritten sections were at times hard to read, we appolgize in advance for errors that may appear.

Marlatt Bible Records

Found at the Lenawee County Historical Society Archives Room in a Hollinger Box, file marked Marlatt. This record contains bible records, records that came from a family member, and records that are unindentified. It is possible and most likely probable that Harriet Cole Clark Bowen collected these records during the 1930's and 40's. She was very active in the DAR and compiled 5 volumes of cemetery records for Lenawee County cemeteries. The records from the Hollinger Box will be copied exactly here, taking particular care with spellings, however, spacing from the typed version found in the Hollinger may be altered here for space considerations. Notations will be made where necessary to indicate handwritten notes, etc.

DUE TO THE SIZE OF THIS RECORD IT WILL BE PRESENTED ON TWO BLOG PAGES.

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.
