I have a ton of other Colbert info, but not in Bible form. Actually,Iam not sure the information on H. H. Colbert's family is from a Bibleorjust a family record, although the George W. Colbert information isdefinetlyfrom that Bible as is the Thomas Colbert and Sallie Keesee information.Thomaswas the son of Lemuel and Phebe Blankenship, and the brother ofWilliam.He married first Stacy Rowland in 1831, and had 5 children, twoof whichappear in Bible record as Nathan and David Colbert, who died induring theCivil War. The other three children of Stacy and Thomas whodo not appearhere, probably as they died after Sallie Colbert and beforeMollie ScruggsColbert took over recording. They were Hester Ann Colbert(1832-1924) (m.James C. Yeatts) and Parthenia Colbert (b. 1840) and SusanColbert(b. 1836),neither of whom married.

Thomas Bible Records
THE WILLIAM THOMAS FAMILY BIBLE by Elijah T. Sutherlin, Danville, VA 8/29/63 This Bible apparently was first owned by William Thomas Sr of Pitts. Co, Va. (I am omitting the rest of the description of theBible). Near the end of the Old Testament, appears to have been writtenaround 1860 or earlier: Nathaniel P. Thomas was born 24th day of August1798, Nathaniel P. Thomas departed this life May 18th, 1851. The followingwriting is inpencil, a more recent hand, which Mrs. George P. Hall statedthat she wrotepersonally: Joyce (Maggie) Thomas Hall was born Aug 23,1917 daughter ofGeorge Pat Hall and his wife Martha Thomas Hall. Writtenby her mother MarthaHall when she was 62 years old in 1951". This itemwas repeated twice moreat different places in this Bible but was not copiedherein. On the oppositepage is written with ink now turned brown: Theages of William Thomas andJoyce Thomas' children: Philip Thomas was bornAugust 16, 1757 NathanielThomas was born July 2, 1759 William Thomas wasborn February 16th, 1761Asa Thomas was born December 13th, 1762 PeytonThomas was born February17th 1765 Jacob Thomas was born February 3d, 1767John Watkins Thomas wasborn October 20th, 1768 George Thomas was bornMarch 15th, 1771 IchabodThomas was born June 13th, 1773 and departed thislife Novr. 26, 1777 WilliamThomas Sr. departed this life December 22nd 179-(1795 or 1799) the lastfigure is illegible), in the 75 year of hisage. William Thomas, Jr. departedthis April 30th, 1799 Nathaniel Thomasdeparted this life May 1 1799 GeorgeThomas departed this life Oct 19 1799John W. Thomas departed this lifeMay (day illegible) 180l Jacob Thomasdeparted this life May 7 1803 AsaThomas departed this life April 11 1813
The next record is in apparently a little later writing and possiblyby another person. Allen M. Thomas was born September 20th, 1826 JoyceThomas, wife of William Thomas, Senior, departed this life 3 of March,1829, age99 years, 8 months and twenty days. At the end of the Apocrypha,the following record appears: William Thomas, Junr. was born July 17 1796.Araminta Thomas, wife of W.P. T. was born May 17 1806
DEATHS; Wm P Thomas was killed at Drewes Bluff on the 10th of May, 1864. Brought home 20th of June & entered 22 of June 15 minutes after 2 ocin afternoon & was 27 years 11 months & 20 days old when he waskilled.
DEATH: Sarah E. Tanner, daughter of W.P. Thomas, his wife departed this life on the 10th of November 1866, died in Texas 39 years 6 months &16 days old. (Note by Mr. Sutherlin) Here is interwritten, in a paler handwhat appears to be "Pocohontas A. Thomas, and some other letters whichare illegible now. Also interwritten: "This the 24th of Sept. 1862" andunder this: "William N. P. Thomas"
Again some pencil writing appears: Here is a repetition of the notation by Mrs. Martha Hall regarding her daughter, Joyce (Maggie) Thomas Hall.The next items appear on the opposite page of the Bible. Joyce Thomas herBook. god give her Grace therein to look not only to she reads) Look Butto understand (What." I pray good reader be so kind, If I am lost and youme find, Thatyou restore me to my master and he'' respect you ever after.For you mayknow I am his own, For me he gave four crowns. The next itemis apparentlyin a different hand, ink and by person. Elsie M. Thomas wasBorn 7 day ofApril 1873 Joyce Thomas was born 1730 September the 5th andwrote thesein the year 1802, September the 20th and departed this lifethe 3rd of March1829 in the 99th year of age. Allen M. Thomas was bornSeptember 20, 1826Sarah E. Thomas was born in the year of our Lord 1828,April 24 Here againappears a different hand, different ink and possiblyanother person's writing.Joseph L. Thomas was born Apl 14 1830 MaryannP. Thomas was born Agst 29,1831 Araminta I. Thomas was born June 20th1833 Wm P. Thomas was born July21 1837 Martha An I. (?) Thomas was bornJune 1 1840 Creed Tanner Thomaswas born Agst 14 1842. (This 14 is veryplain but has been written or re-writtenover something else,--note byMr. Sutherlin) Pocohontas A. Thomas was bornJune 11 1846 (11th also written or rewritten over) Emily (Here are apparentlytwo letters but they areilligible). Thomas was born Sept. 11th, 1848. (Herea big "1" appears tohave been written between the 4 and the 8 in the 1848)The above is thenames and ages of Wm Thomas & Araminta his wife Thomaschildren. Onthe back of the center fly leaf or the leaf at the beginningof the NewTestament the following records appear. June 15th day 1806, W.Peyton Thomasleft his native place to go to Louisannia. (No doubt Louisana).Note byMr. Sutherlin. Allen Motley Thomas was married to Miss Mary T. (Hereishole in the page about 3/8 of an inch wife and long). Lumpkin, Decr.the20 day 1870 Elsa M. Thomas was born the 7 day of April five after eleveno'clockin the year 1873 Creed T. Thomas was married to Miss Mary E. Gravleythe18 day Dec 1872 Miss Mary T. Thomas, wife of A . M. Thomas was bornthe30 day of June 1835 Allen M. Thomas was born the 20 day of Sept. 1826Rote this in the 46 year of his age.
To be best of my knowledge and belief the foregoing record is a trueand accurate copy of the Bible mentioned therein. Elijah T. Sutherlin,Danville, VA Aug 29 1963

This document was handwritten sometime between 1941 and 1945 by HenryA. Williams, great-great grandson of John H. Blair. All four of his grandparents (as well as a number of great-uncles and aunts) had made the trip fromnear Danville and Chatham, VA, to Grayson County, TX in 1859, and mostwere still living during Henry A. Williams’ adulthood.
(The handwritten document was transcribed on typewriter (accurately)by Mrs. G.C. Neaves of Norman, OK, in 1963, and I scanned the typewrittendocument into a .doc file in 1996. I proofed the computer file againstthe original handwritten document. I retained original spellings and sentencestructure, but in some minor cases substituted the typewritten punctuationfor thehandwritten punctuation.)
The families involved are BLAIR, WILLIAMS, KEEN and TURNER .Many of the Blairs later settled in Fannin County and elsewhere in Texas. Some of the Williams stayed in Grayson County, some moved to Tishomingo,OK, and some moved to Coleman County, TX. The Turner family stayed, inthe main, in Grayson and neighboring Fannin Counties.

We date back to 1250, or near that time, and are descended from William De Blair, Baron of Scotland, and it is thought that the Duke of Atholenow lives in the Blair Castle in Perthshire, Scotland. Of course, therearemany branches from this main trunk and many "Coats of Arms.”In theearly days of Cromwell's reign, many Scotch families moved [to] thenorthpart of Ireland and established Scotch Colonies--always retained religionsandpolitical views, and, so to speak, stuck together--did not and intermarrywiththe Irish--and from there and Scotland our ancestors have migratedhereat different times. Our direct line came over in 1765 or near thattime.
Our immigrant ancestor, William Blair, married Sarah Suter, daughterof George Suter of York, Yorke County, Pennsylvania. William Blair wasverypatriotic and saw much service in the Revolution. He came to the UnitedStateswith two brothers, one of whom, James Blair, settled in Charlotte,NorthCarolina, Nothing is known, so far, of the other one,
HISTORY OF JOHN F. BLAIR AND FAMILY
John Francis Blair was a large land and slave owner in PittsylvaniaCounty, Virginia. He lived on a large tobacco farm, raised nothing buttobacco and cured and manufactured it on the place, with the aid of hisnumerous slaves. His old home, and a lot of the negro cabins with theirold pot-racks still in place, are still standing.
In 1859, as a number of his friends had come to Texas and landed inGrayson County and with the Civil War at hand, John F. Blair and familydecidedto come also--expecting to buy large plantations and "grow up withthe country." So on November 15, 1859, the journey was begun in wagons.Uncle George said, "We left Virginia in wagons, and they were covered allright, but were drawn by mules and horses instead of oxen, and to thatextent our coming may have been irregular. We came over a good road asfar as Knoxville, Tennessee,where we boarded a steamboat for Gaines' Landing,Arkansas. Disembarkingat Gaines' Landing , we again took the road, orrather resumed our wagons,for there were no roads, and headed for Texas.We arrived in Grayson County,January 15, 1860. We were seventy days makingthe journey--one of our airplaneboys could cover the distance in the courseof an afternoon. From Gaines'Landing we drove across Arkansas and crossedRed River at Texarkana." WithJohn F. came his 8 sons and 2 daughters--therewere 33 or 34 in the familythen, including sons-in-law, daughters-in-lawand children, among them 4babies, Tom, son of Keen and Lucy Blair, Peter,son of Charles and Pat Blair,Nanny , daughter of Peter and Emaline Turner,and Will Henry , son of ElizaAnn and W. D. (Billy) Williams. There werealso ten Negroes, 8 of John F.Blair’s and 2 of Peter Turner’s, son-in-lawof JohnF. Blair.
The party camped near Bonham , December 31, 1859, when a big northerand snow-storm struck them. John F., who had a carriage and driver, droveonto Rev. S. J. Spotts' home near Bells, Grayson County, The rest of thebunchdrove on in the wagons to Old Warren where they spent the night inCol.Bradford's home. Peter Turner and family went to the home of the Pritchetts,whomthey had known in Virginia.
Two other Virginia families came with the Blairs--those of Ben Williams (brother of Billy) , and Capt. Brooks--there were 17 in these twofamilies. All told, there were about 60 people in the Blair caravan. Therewere 43of the Blair family in their caravan of five wagons--Charles Blairhad 1horse; Billy Williams had 1 horse; Peter Turner had 2 mulesand 1horse; and John F. Blair had 4 mules and 2 horses.
John F. Blair traded a Negro girl, 16 or 17 years old, for a sectionof land, and bought a section that adjoined it.

I have copied these records as they were given to me. I do not have the
date the Bible was published plus it is interesting that informationwas
added to the Bible after Joab Sikes had died. Also interesting is that
Joab spelled his last name with and "i" Sikes, and laterin the Bible
notations he spelled his children's names with a "y" Sykes.
I hope this information will help others in searching this
Sykes (Sikes) family. I know I am interested in more information and being
in Texas I haven't had the chance to visit Danville and do someresearch.

Died of pneumonia, at her home near Chatham, on January 6th, Mrs. Lettie

She leaves a husband, eight children and one brother, Moses Skates, of Henry
County, to morn their loss.
Mrs. Motley had a bright, happy disposition which, together with many
deeds of kindness and acts of love, won for her a host of friends. Indeed,
all who knew her loved her. She was familiarly known as "Aunt Let." Above
all she was a devout Christian. She manifested her religion by her daily
walk and conversation. She was one of the charter members of Marion Baptist
Church, having been a member of old Banister Church from early girlhood.
When that church was disbanded and Marion organized she joined the new
organization, of which body she remained faithful until God called her to
We shall miss her so much but know that our loss has been her gain, and
we bow in humble submission to God's will knowing He doeth all things well.
