APOCRYPHA

Top of first page

Mary Gore now Stephen was born December 12th 1813 - so says Susannah our oldest sister (This entry would have been made after 1829 when the mother died, and Margaret, the oldest, was also dead then. It may even have been made after Thomas died in 1850.)

Two blank pages of Bible

All the following a child's writing?

Mary Gore She married Joe Alexander. She is not well She is so sick she has not ben cence (since) the ??? year ???. (This was Isaac's daughter Mary not his sister Mary. Mary and Joseph married in February 1876. Joseph was previously married to Queen Victoria, a much-younger sisterof Isaac's second wife Sarah Caroline Stagner)

Mary Gore

Franklin Thomason

Dallas Tex

Last page
(I can decipher nothing on the first line; on the second "(dal marked out?)Dallas Texas 1884 dear?"; on the third and fourth "brother sister ??? i will u ???.")

(This record shows that Eliza Jane Gore and George Thomason were in Texas by 1884. Franklin Thomason was their son.)
