Kolling Family Bible Records

A family Bible is being auctioned on Ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3591295826&category=29361

I am not the seller, nor am I a Kolling descendant. The information offered on the auction site is all I have. This is what the seller says about the family history pages in this Bible:

"This bible is not in great shape but I am selling at a higher price then normal because of the work I had to do in translating it. The family entries are written in a very distinctive Moravian script. I will list below what I have transtated.
Johann Heinrich Christian Kolling born December 29th 1839

Maria Louisa Kolling born February 14th 1849

Rosalina Sophia Louisa Kolling born May 2nd 1870

John Walther Kolling born April 16th 1872

Katharina Auguste Christina Kolling born July 1876

Wilhemina Anna Kolling born July 18th 1874

Dorothea Maria Kolling born August 7th 1878

Christian Fritz Wilhelm Franz Kolling born February 4th 1880.

There is more but this is all that I have translated. This interesting naming pattern usually comes from the Prussian area of Germany. This bible belonged to Christian Kolling. This bible was published by the American bible society of New York. The cover is seperated. Any questions please email."

Should anyone want to contact the seller at a later date, that seller's Ebay information is at http://cgi2.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=terrbarr

Good luck!
