McDorman - Milligan Family Bible

Transcribed and made available for all to share by Frederick Howard.

Oliver Nelson has the old Bible of the McDorman & Milligan family of Somerset County. The copyright of this Bible is 1849. Inside the Bible, pressed between the pages, are numerous dried flowers and a lock of brown hair. Numerous entries of births, deaths, and marriages are documented. The name of Hazel Warren Clark (a distant cousin) is annotated on the back page with an address of 835 N. 4th St, Steubenville (?), Ohio.

The annotations in the old family Bible are noted below as transcribed by Freddy Howard in November of 2005. (Of Note: Oftentimes, "Mc" was dropped from "McDorman" and was written as just "Dorman").
