Samuel & Matilda Royer family Bible - 1800's PA

No relation. I just enjoy browsing through family Bibles up for auction on eBay and trying to connect any genealogical info to those that might find it of interest or worth pursuing. I am not the seller, nor do I intend to purchase. Unfortunately, links to eBay items only stay active for a couple months. Here is what I found:

According to the seller:

Samuel Royer & Matilda Van Buskirk Family Bible - 1849. Purchased at auction in hopes of returning to family. Starting bid is what I paid. Information from bible: Samuel Royer Married Dec 2, 1829 to Matilda Van Buskirk. Lists birth dates for Samuel & Matilda and for the following children: Edwin L., Susan L., G. V. B.(George Van Buskirk), Elizabeth, Lucinda, Charles R., Catharine, Lesher, William A., Mary M. and Amelia C. born between the years 1831 - 1850. Death dates for Samuel & Matilda and some of the children also listed. Inside the bible is a very old page with childrens names with most of the middle names included. Also a funeral invitation for Samuel Royer's funeral in Pottstown, PA on November 3, 1885. See Photos! Good Luck!
