Johnston - Kennedy Family Bible

 
Transcribed and submitted by:  10/18/2004
 
The following is from the Bible of Ronald Johnston and his wife Margaret Kennedy who lived in Cartersville and taught school there from the late 1860s through the early 1880s. The Bible was printed in New York by the American Bible Society, 1868. Notations made by myself are set apart in parenthesis. The first three children named are the children of Ronald and his first wife Sarah Sligh who died about 1865, probably in Cartersville.
