Yeilding Family Bible

Contributed by: Lisa Wilson,

The Yeildings settled in Blount Co., AL between 1812 and 1819. From 1795 to 1810, Richard Yeilding was at Walnut Creek and Green river, Rutherford Co., NC. He served in the Revolutionary War from 1778-1781, in the 3rd VA Dragoons, Col. William Washington's Cavalry. A military plaque was supposed to have been placed in his honor in Blount Co., Alabama. In the dedication speach for the placement of this plaque it states the plaque had not been received by the dedication date. This plaque has yet to be found in a Blount Co. cemetery. It is doubtfull it was ever placed. In 1819, on May 20, Richard purchased land in Lawrence Co, Alabama Territory, Sec. 23, Twp. 6, Rng. 9W. Then on July 6, Richard and his son Francis purchased land in Blount Co., Alabama Territory, Sec. 27, Twp. 10, Rng. 1E. In 1820, Richard was appointed with others to supervise the erection of public buildings in the Blount County Seat of Blountsville. In the 1840's he and Nancy were members of the Siloam Baptist Church in Royal, 6 miles east of Blountsville. The church is now the Church of God of Prophecy, Royal, Alabama.

Bible of Richard Yeilding

The transcriber of these bible records is unknown to me (Lisa Wilson). I have not seen an original copy of this bible, so therefore I do not know exactly how these records were entered. I am typing them exactly as was transcribed. I am sure this transcriber edited these entries. There would not have been reason to write out dates and put them in numerical dates on the same entry. The transcriber added their own Editor's Note at the end of these entries.

Editor's Note (not Lisa Wilson): These pages are probably only a portion of the Bible; however, it supplies very valuable information. Perhaps the remaining parts of the Bible can be located and more information clarified. There appears to be at least three different scripts in the writing, although two of these could be the same script which has changed with the increasing age of the individual who entered the information. The author thinks that the Bible most likely belonged to Richard and Milly Yeilding and then was passed on to Francis Yeilding and was then probably given to one of the descendants of Francis and Betsy Earles Yeilding.

Edwards Bible Record, Pike County, Alabama

Contributed by: Lisa Wilson,

This branch of the Edwards Family came to America in the 17th Century and acquired considerable land in Surry and adjoining counties in Virginia. In this Edwards family were repeated again and again the names Thomas, John, Benjamin, William, Micajah and Etheldred. This line of Edwards was also found in Middlesex Co., Virginia. From Virginia, the move was made to North Carolina where Benjamin and Mary are believed to have lived in Halifax and Edgecombe Counties. It is possible that they also lived in Granville and Orange Co., North Carolina. From North Carolina Benjamin and Mary Edwards moved their family to Georgia in the late 1780's. They settled in the Wilkes/Oglethorpe/Greene/Taliaferro area between 1785 and 1794. One son of Benjamin and Mary,

"Old" Thomas, that is not listed in their bible moved his family to the Pike/Bullock County area of Alabama soon after the 1850 census.

Bible of Benjamin & Mary Edwards

The Benjamin Edwards Bible is very small, about 3" x 6". It was printed in 1759, in Cambridge, England, by Joseph Bentham at "His Majesty's Special Command".  Handwriting used for family data was distinguished, even elegant. Entries were obviously made at thime of births, for old fashioned forms of letters were used, as f for the double s, as in Jesse.

Only births were recorded. The births of five of the seven children of "Benjamin and Mary his wife" were recorded in the Bible.

Micajah Edwards son of Benjamin Edwards an Mary his wife was born  October the 8th day 1762.

Salle Edwards daughter of Benjamin Edwards an Mary his wife was born May the 12th day 1764.

Jesse Edwards son of Benjamin Edwards an Mary his wife was born March the 8th day 1766.

Elizabeth Edwards daughter of Benjamin Edwards an Mary his wife was born November the 11th day 1767.

Jemima Edwards daughter of Benjamin Edwards an Mary his wife was born January the 21st day 1770.

Smith Family Record

As I promised here is the records that I found In McNairy Co, Tenn. A cousin had had saved theses papers and notes and reciepts dating back to 1844. As you can see it looks as if they were copied verbatium from a Family Bible. This is grand father Smiths records written by. BBS.

Father was born Aug.13th 1779 (I have the evidence that Father was David Smith)

from the census records my Joel Smith was born in Ga. as for the rest of these folks I cant say now haven't had the time to work the out of the census records as of yet. However in the 1830 Perry Co Census there was a John Smithliving next door to My Joel Smith's wife Daddy. Burrell Brittain.

Where parting and all tears are done

And farewell sighs are heard no more."

Patterson of Covington Co., AL Bible Pages

Typed and contributed by Lygia Dawkins Cutts June 16, 1997,
Bible in the possession of Margretta LaJune Mattingly.
Bible pages in the possession of Agnes Sue Smith.


June finally got copies of her Bible pages. The story behind this is: Mary A. Hardin fell heir to her mother's (Lena Ardela Straughn Patterson) Family Bible. When Mary turned 65 she used the Bible as proof of birth. When her sister, Laura Inez, turned 65, she needed proof of age so Mary tore the pages out of the Bible and sent them to her. Now, Mary's daughter, LaJune has the Bible and Inez's daughter Sue has the Bible pages. This weekend Sue brought LaJune a copy of the Bible Pages. Here are the Bible Records!

Harrelson Family Bible

Contributed by Bobbie Davis <>, MAY 2004. Corrections and scan of original contributed OCT 2004 by Teresa Ellison <> who writes:
"Her name was Mary Ann Elizabeth McMillan who married Hugh Chisholm in 1850. They had Daniel T. Chisholm in 1850... the same year Hugh died. Mary Ann remarried Elijah Harrelson and had the children that are listed. I have a picture of that Bible (page 1) (page 2) and a picture of the marriage certificate between her and Hugh. When Hugh died in 1850 (the same year Daniel T. was born), Mary Ann became a widow... and between 1850 and 1853, she married Elijah Harrelson from Walton County,FL."
