Say Hello to Joyce 
Transcribed by Linda ZAPF Cracraft
We are transcribing these from photocopies of local Bible Records in the collection of Tioga County Historical Society in Wellsboro. We thank them for their generosity in making them available to us. Many of the pages we have are photocopies of photocopies of faded or damaged original pages. As such, they are often very difficult to read. We have done the best that we can do considering the poor condition of some of the copies.

The name on the fly leaf is C. G. Hill: which would designate a former owner of the book.
