Through the tremendous generosity of a fellow genealogical researcher, I have recently a obtained a family Bible (along with several other documents) belonging to William John Stavely Cathcart (1823-1901).
Perhaps the most interesting document included was a letter written to William by his father-in-law, Rev. Thomas Ketchin (1786-1855) in 1854.
Digital images of the Bible entries (birth, death, marriage dates), the letter mentioned above, a money bond, and a soap recipe can be found here:
I would welcome all comments/corrections on my transcription… or any other communication with respect to these documents.
