Joseph Jenney

Holy Bible in English; Mark and Charles Kerr, Edinburgh 1789.

The Bible page is now in the possession of the C. G. Brisee Genealogy Library, Irwin, Iowa.

The New Testament title page, and the family history written on the verso are all that remain of the
Family Bible of Joseph and Abigail (Church) Jenney. Abigail was apparently Joseph's second wife. There
are some unusual entries on the page, such as Abigail, the youngest daughter who was born 7 months
after the death of her father, changed her name (first and last name) at age two.
