Forrey Family Bible -Jacob & Susannah

I am trying to research my husband's family tree. His father (in Ohio) let me scan pages of a Forrey Family Bible that they have. I want to share the name and dates below in it. He doesn't know how this Forrey family is related to him. The only connection I see is that there is a Nancy Forrey who became a Randolph, and there is a Sarah Jane Randolph listed in another family bible he has for the Farrar's. I've also posted that info under Farrar. If anyone has more information, please let me know.
