"L. D. Canterbury and Ellen Elizabeth Williams was married February the 11th 1877."

"Newton Canterbury and Susan L. Williams was married September the 21st A D 1876."

The next page starts two pages of "Births" entries. The first entry, on the top of the first page, is:

"Shadrick Canterbury was born on the 1st day of June in the A D 1796"

Beneath that entry is the printed title of the page "Family Records." There are two "Births" columns of entries below that.

In the left hand column:

"Zechariah Clinton Canterbury, son of Shadrick Canterbury, was born on the 21st day of March in the year of our lord 1826.

"James Monroe Canterbury, son of Shadrick Canterbury, was born 27th day of October in the year of our lord 1828."

"George William Canterbury was born January 19th A D 1860."

"Laura Jane Canterbury was born Feb 1st A D 1862."

"Andrew Coker Canterbury was born the 1st day of November A D 1867."

The fourth and final page lists the deaths. Like the other pages it has two columns.

In the left column:

"Sarah Canterbury departed this life Sept 14th 1851 Age 77."

"Zachariah Canterbury departed this life Sept 11 1852 Age 80."

In the right column:

"Shadrick Canterbury departed this life May 27 1884 Age 88 years 28 days."

"Sary E Canterbury departed this life February 4, 1889."

The writing is very difficult to read. The pages have faded and the book experienced some water damage along the way. It is in very rough condition with the back cover missing and the front cover off. Many of the pages in Genesis and Revelations are missing. I have tried to spell the words as they appeared in the book. I realize that spelling was not everyone's fine suit during that period. The parentheses in the copy are mine.
