Toombs Family Bible Pages
The Friends of the C.H. Booth Library in Newtown, CT has one of the largest (and best organized) book sales in the Northeast, and I am honored to be a member of this group. Recently a very large 1822 Bible was donated to the book sale. The cover of the Bible was inscribed: A.J. and C.D. Toombs. I carefully leafed through to the family pages and found handwriting. I have transcribed these pages and am in the process of figuring out where to post the document so family members might find it. Most family members were born in the New York City area – Staten Island, Brooklyn, New York. A few were born in Boston. The family names in this bible are: Toombs, Chase, Cloyd, Dongan, Hutchinson, Rogers, and Waters.
