Notes

These records were copied by Vernon Cook Stillwell, great-grandson of Jeremiah Stillwell and Ann Boud. The current location of the original Bible is unknown nor is it known when these records were copied, other than it was prior to 1968, the year Vernon died.

I have presented the information here just as it appears on the paper copy that I have in my possession. You will notice the conflict in the birth date of Jeremiah Stillwell. In column 1 of the first page it reads Aug. 23, 1786 but in column 2 of the same page it shows July 23, 1789. I believe this was probably an error which occurred when the records were copied. August 23, 1786 is the correct date.
