Physicians Record Book
of
Lucinda Battin Frey

My Aunt Alice sent me a Physicians Record Book that belonged to my Great Grandmother Lucinda Battin Frey. Grandma was a mid-wife for many years and helped in the birth of many babies in Fox Township. Aunt Alice said I could keep this book for myself, but there are other ones scattered amoung the family. I will try to track them down and borrow them to copy the history.
In the meantime, just a couple of notes to go along with it.
Great-Grandma's writing was very beautiful and flowing, making it a little hard to read sometimes. I did the best I could and apoligize for any mistakes. On the other hand, her numbers were very hard to make out. Most of the pages were signed by her, except that the page with the birth of Keith McKay was signed by Jennie Brown.
The last two entries were on loose papers just stuck in the book.
The story is now yours to put on the Sullivan County site.
