Hope this helps:
went through my material- this is actually not bible pages, but from several long and chatty letters from one family member to another, filling them in on all the genealogy from that part of the family. She copied out birth/marriage/death dates on all thirteen children, and i have some other discussion of children of some of these children.
1)Eli Converse Orcutt, b. 11/15/1818, d. 4/7/1887
2)Philena Hyde Orcutt b.3/4/1820 m. Dwight Slate 6/18/1843 (2 children) d.3/4/1885
3)Maryett Weber Orcutt 12/22/1821, m. Henry Atbe or Abbe 4/15/1850, d. 10/8/1884
4)William Rice Orcutt b 10/20/1823, m. Frances Skinner 11/6/1849, d. 5/15/1882
5)Eliza Converse Orcutt b 3/12/1825, d.7/31/1849
6)Eunice COnverse Orcutt b 4/15/1827, m Benjamin Rockwell 12/3/1857
7)John Philip Orcutt (my ancestor) b12/23/1829, m. Eliza McCleary 1868, d. 5/26/1902
8)Martha Hyde Orcutt b. 12/25/1830 m Franklin Fay 8/16/1854, d. 2/5/1855
9)Guilford Dudley Orcutt b.8/8/1832, d. 11/3/1871
10)Jane Grey Orcutt b. 8/10/1835, d.5/11/1856
11)Henry Llweleyn Orcutt, b 12/17/1836, d. 3/20/1858.
12)Frank Orcutt 11/3/1838, m Carrie S. Brooks (my letter writer) 12/16/1865
13)Eliza Orcutt 3/24/1841, d. 7/31/1849

At the time of the letters (1903) Aunt Carrie was writing from Stafford Springs, Connecticut to John Philip's son Frank living in Arizona, later in LA. Los Angeles. John Philip had moved to Iowa, and Aunt Carrie was corresponding with Frank, who apparently was having trouble getting all the relatives straight (understandably) The way the names etc are copied, leads me to think she may have been copying from bible pages- she gives the births, then the marriages of all, then the deaths of those who are already gone at that time.
Unfortunately, frank and his wife died in 1905 within a 2 months of each other, and Frnak's son Forrest was raised by an uncle. Hence, no more letters that i have located, although there might be more in my mother's/father's family papers.
