DAVIDSON BLACKWELL BIBLE  

    

 
Note:  This record was contributed by Mary Ann Strickland Grainger from a copy made and shared by Jean Barber of Jasper, Alabama, the foremost researcher on the Blackwell families.  I do not know the date of the original bible or its publisher.  I have not included the records that were scattered in the bible that provided the birthdate and marriages of grandchildren.  By numbering this record, the entries on the grandchildren can be added later.
