The Butterfield Bible – Part 1 – Births

Cover of the Daisy Butterfield Bible

I recently received a copy of the “Butterfield Bible” from a friend who asked that I share its contents in the “Genealogy World.”  The bible is an 1889 edition that appears to have originally been owned by Daisy E. Butterfield of Marseilles, Illinois, who put her name inside the front cover in 1889.  The section between the Old and New Testaments includes “Family Record” sheets for Marriages, Births, and Deaths. This is a transcript of the “Births.” Besides the entries in the Bible, there is an additional sheet of births.

There are 11 additional entries that I’ve decided not to transcribe because of privacy concerns. All relate to individuals born since 1940. Family Search does not appear to have Birth Records for individuals born in Illinois after 1940, so I won’t transcribe these entries here.

Three of them are included in the attached graphic and the remaining entries are on a separate sheet (not included here) that was folded in the BMD section of the bible.
