Huldah Rowley Fenn's Bible Pages

22 August 2014

Some of you may remember my blog posts about Hattie's Bible.  Hattie's Bible was a series of posts sharing the contents and information found in my Great Grandmother's, Hattie Fenn Glover, Bible. I was extremely fortunate to be the recipient of Hattie's Bible.  I think it is amazing to have one set of family Bible records, but having two is truly a gift.

I have Hattie's Bible in my position, but Huldah's Bible is owned by someone else, Carol.  Carol graciously scanned and shared the pages of Huldah's Bible with me. Huldah is Huldah Rowley Fenn, Hattie's grandmother, my third great grandmother.

The information in Huldah's Bible wasn't as rich as the information in Hattie's.  Most of the information found in Huldah's Bible was added by someone other than Huldah herself, based on the year of the information. The first page I am sharing is the history of ownership of the Bible.  I am not sure of who provided the information.

Who's Who? 

  • Great Grandma Fenn is Huldah Rowley Fenn.  Huldah was born in Vermont about 1789.  She married Daniel Fenn 28 Feb 1808 in Shoreham, Addison, Vermont.  Huldah Fenn died 8 March 1836, Chelsea, Washtenaw, Michigan. I believe the parents of Huldah were Hopkins Rowley and Elizabeth Stuart or Stewart, but more research is needed before I definitively say they were.
  • Elizabeth Fenn is the daughter in law of Huldah Rowley Fenn.
  • Daniel Fenn is the son of Huldah Rowley and Daniel Fenn.
  • Zealton Myron Fenn is Huldah's grandson.
  • Mabel Fenn Darwin is Huldah's great granddaughter. She is the daughter of Tully Fenn.
  • Tully Fenn is Huldah's grandson, the son of Daniel and Elizabeth Fenn.
