Cornish/Clever
Family Bible

Submitted by Daryl Holmes

The following information comes from a very old, rapidly decaying family bible. These folks lived in Greene county from the late 1700s into the 1850s or 1860s, although some of the kids of John and Mary removed to Delaware county in the 1830s. Presumably, many descendents are still in Greene county today... All entries below are exactly as they appear in the Family Record section of the bible. Note that the publication date of this bible is 1816, so some of the dates clearly were entered much after the event.
