[p. 140]

We here present literal copies of the records in the Family Bible of Asaph Warren7 (Thaddeus6, Daniel5, Rebecca Church4, Caleb3, Elizabeth Warren2, Richard1) of Westborough, Mass., a descendant of Richard Warren of the Mayflower.
Among these records is the birth of Asaph Warren's grandson, Denny G. Warren, whose widow, Mrs. Ada C. Warren, of Westborough, presented the bible to the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants.
The title page of the Old Testament bears the imprint: "Philadelphia: Printed And Published By M. Carey, No. 121, Chesnut* Street. 1814." The date on the title page of the New Testament, however, in "1815".
It is interesting to note that although Asaph Warren7, the first owner of this bible, bore the same surname as his Mayflower ancestor, he did not get that name from Richard</sup>1</sup> Warren, the Mayflower Passenger.
His Mayflower line was as follows:
  1. Richard Warren married Elizabeth -----
  2. Elizabeth Warren married Richard Church
  3. Caleb Church married Joanna Sprague
  4. Rebecca Church married Joshua Warren
  5. Daniel Warren married Martha Coolidge
  6. Thaddeus Warren married Hannah Gould
  7. Asaph Warren married Anna Whitney
The Joshua Warren who married Rebecca Church was not a descendant of the Mayflower family. He belonged to the Warren family of Watertown, Mass
The family record pages in Asaph Warren's bible are between the Old Testament and the Apocrypha.
Literal copies of these records follow:
