Ignatius Bruce Family Bible Record


The Bible record shows that James G(ibson) Bruce is a son of Ignatius Bruce and 
not the son of Azariah Benjamin Bruce, dispelling a common misconception.  

The pertinent notations are:

BIRTHS                               DEATHS

Ignatius Bruce born Feb 7th 1780   | Ignatius Bruce died Sept 21st 1813
Sinai his wife born Aug 15th 1778  | Sinai has died
___________________________________|
James G. Bruce born Aug 28th 1800  |
Nancy H. Bruce born Aug 8th 1800   |
Samuel J. Bruce born Aug 26th 1804 | S.J. Bruce Died July 3rd 1837
Mary M. Bruce born March 26th 1807 |
Frances P. Bruce born Feb 26th 1809| Frances P. Bruce died Mar 18th 1812 or 1822
Ignatius Bruce born Aug 13th 1814  |
Bailey Bruce born Dec 26th 1813    |


A left margin entry in part says: 

Fathers old Bible April 11 1841 - B Bruce


Jim and Byford Bruce & Jack White agree, the B. Bruce is likely Bailey Bruce, the youngest 
child listed under Ignatius Bruce and his wife Sanai.
