Ms. Olsen;
(From the SYRACUSE,ONONDAGA Co.,NEW YORK & the ESSEX Co., NEW JERSEY area)
Maam, I AM NOT a member of any AUSTIN family, "HOWEVER", I have in my possession a small family BIBLE that originally belonged to ROSE CURTIS-AUSTIN (b:06/24/1859) who was married to “JOHN S. AUSTIN” (b:09/26/1852). They lived in Syracuse, Onondaga Co., New York. They were married 01/26/1879 and had three (3) Daughters. Their names were;
GENEVIEVE LILLIAN AUSTIN-(ALLEN), BERTHA MILDRED AUSTIN-(PUTNAM) AND HARRIETT CURTIS AUSTIN-(PHILLIPS). This BIBLE, although printed at a later date (1936), probably by ROSE CURTIS-AUSTIN and has important family information in its family history area. I was able to trace JOHN S. and ROSE AUSTIN along with their Daughter BERTHA A. and her Husband RAYMOND E. PUTNAM (M: Aug. 30,1905) to SYRACUSE CITY, ONANDAGA COUNTY, NEW YORK (1930 U.S. CENSUS, Sheet# 11A, WARD 11, BLOCK 1128).
Some of the Vann Phillips family continued to live in MORRIS PLAINS, EAST ORANGE, ESSEX COUNTY, NEW JERSEY, but I have been unable to find any descendents there. HARRIETT CURTIS-AUSTIN-PHILLIPS married VANN RICHARD PHILLIPS in 1908.. Their Daughter is LORAINE AUSTIN PHILLIPS-YOUNG Married to HAROLD YOUNG on Oct. 25, 1941….
GENEVIEVE LILLIAN AUSTIN-ALLEN Married ROBERT L. ALLEN in 1917. I don’t know where they lived..
I located this family treasure while I was looking through our local church library (OLD TENNENT PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH located next to MONMOUTH BATTLEFIELD in TENNENT (Freehold area), NEW JERSEY). It seems our Pastor is an avid collector of old BIBLES and he puts them on the library shelves for all to look at. I am an amateur Genealogist and I happened upon this BIBLE and I asked if I could locate the family to return this treasure to them.
I would like to turn this bible over to a descendant of one of the Daughters if possible. It is Free as I feel that they would want this as a Family Keepsake for their future Generations to see and cherish...
"THIS BIBLE NEEDS TO GO HOME TO THE PROPER DECENDENTS OF JOHN & ROSE AUSTIN!!!"
