This is a family record in the Bible of Allen and Nancy (Swaim) Swindell. Notes have been made after many entries in an effort to clarify the record. Notes are enclosed in brackets [ ]. Comments of original transcriber are in parentheses ( ).

(From a Bible, dated 1849 copied as exactly as possible – some of it is hard
to read. They had some imaginative spelling and grammar.)

(on a piece of paper stuck in Bible – no names – Born Sept 29, 1834 Randolph
Co., NC Married July 18 1870 died Dec 21 1900) [Harvey Carr married Jane Swindell. See
1880 Census of Grant Co., IN, and 1900 census of Madison Co., IN. Jane's middle initial
is “L” on 1900 census. 1900 census also has them married for 23 years, so a marriage
date of 18 or 19 Jul. 1876 looks good. Jane was single on the 1870 census taken on 3 Aug.]
