19th Century Book Found In Storage Unit Is Rich With Family History
The book, Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis of the Holy Bible, was rich with history. Tucked inside its pages were two preserved roses, a high school graduation program from 1886 and handwritten family records of births, marriages and deaths.
At the back of the 1,159-page book are three pages of carefully scribed names, written in a caligraphy-like cursive with purple ink. The records document vital events -- births, marriages and deaths -- between 1880 and 1915. The heads of the family noted are Erza B. Osborne, born in 1822, and Elizabeth Hitchcock, born in 1829.
The aged flowers are held together by a string and a white label that reads, "Bessie's Wedding, June 18, 1912.''
