Old Peden Bible

Doris Ellis had a chance to transcribe the notes in the old Peden Bible owned by Hallie Lewis. Hallie was the only child of Mary Florence Peden and "Jay" Leonard Lewis.  Doris sent these notes to me on 12 June 2004.

Note: the notation "Old Stile" on many date does not refer to a place. Rather it refers to the date changes to the Gregorian Calendar when Pope Gregory XIII decreed that the day following 4th October 1582 would be 15th October. This change took effect at different times in different countries, with the change in England and her American Colonies taking effect in 1752. To read more about this, click here.
