Bible on Ebay - Rogers/MacQuaid
Posted by: Teresa Arcangel Date: September 12, 2001 at 22:19:41

A Bible is being auctioned on Ebay with the following included in the description:
A handwritten ink presentation on the front fly leaf says "John W. H. Rogers. Presented by his Mother July 1st, 1845." There are four pages of partially filled family records (all pictured), the earliest date being the birth of John W.H. Rogers in 1814, and the most recent being the death of Abby Rogers in 1884. While most of the last names are Rogers, I also see the names MacQuaide, French, Thwing and Currier. Most events are not ascribed to a certain location, but two of the marriages took place in New York City and Chelsea, Massachusetts, respectively; and J.W.H. Rogers drowned in Portland Harbor (presumably Maine) in 1870. A laid-in sheet (also pictured) lists a series of what I assume to be births (with the corresponding wedding date of the parents) between the years of 1867 and 1890. Other laid-in items that were found with the book (all but one also pictured) include an embroidered cross with the (damaged) metal-bead inscription "Mrs. Rogers"; a similarly embroidered wreath and anchor (not pictured - maybe associated with the drowning?); the cross-stitch embroidered initials "A.A.R."; and a full-length photo postcard of an unidentified man with the rubberstamp of a photographer in Newport, Rhode Island, on the back.
