Wood-Bunker Family Bible

In July 1990, Dick purchased a copy of H. & E. Phinney's Stereotype Edition of the Bible, published in 1843 in Cooperstown, N. Y. at the Nantucket Historical Society's annual de-aquisition sale. Books and other memorabilia for sale were placed on tables in the back yard of the society's library. The back of the bible contains the inscription Wood-Bunker Nantucket Mass.

There are four pages for family records located between the Old Testament and the Apocrypha. They cover marriages, births, and deaths from 1785 to 1899 for the family names Wood, Folger, Bunker, Cathcart, Parry, Joy, and Shaw. I have scanned thumbnail images of the four pages below and entered the data in tables next to the images.
