Johann Georg & Rachel (Conrad) Speth family Bible - PA

No relation. I just enjoy browsing through family Bibles up for auction on eBay and trying to connect any genealogical info provided by the seller to those that might find it interesting or worth pursuing. I am not the seller! Here is information based on what I received when I wrote to the seller:

Although written in German, here is what I could make out:

Johann Georg Speth, son of Georg Speth and “von sefsen” Ehefrau (wife) Anna Maria Ritter, was born 31 May 1785 in the afternoon at 4 o'clock in Cocalico Township, Lancaster County(, PA). He died 1873

Johann Georg Speth married Rachel Conrad in Dec 1813. Rachel, daughter of Johannes Conrad, was born 1792 in Lancaster Co.

Their children:
Catharina, b. 1814
Anna, m. Nov 1837 to Hermann Eby (possibly a grandson to Christian Eby?)
Maria, d. 1880
Suzanna, d. 1849
Christina, b. 1832
all born from 1814- 1832.

It’s noted that Rachel died 1849, but I don’t know if that was mother or daughter.
