Rixey Bible Image

The Rixey family bible, owned by Samuel Rixey (1780-1866) has over 100 listings of family births, deaths, and marriages which took place between 1790 and 1870. Notable also are the many vital records of slave births and deaths recorded there. Click the image below to access the document.
