Note: All entries were apparently written by John Whitney Jr, b. 1783 with the exception of the last. The last entry was written noting the death of this man and appears to have been written by Henry Payson Whitney based on my knowledge of his handwriting. The bible became the property of H.P. Whitney, then passed down to his daughter, Julia Whitney Setzler, to her son Donald Whitney Setzler. Donald gave the bible to Robert Schadewald, great grandson of Julia Whitney Setzler. He in turn gave it to Joanne Englund Hogle, great granddaughter of Julia Whitney Setzler, in Aug 1999.
