Carpenter Bible Records

Submitted by Jerry Tuttle

This is a page from bible of Joseph M. Carpenter, my great grandpa, who was born Dec 02, 1869, died Dec 03, 1962.  He married Emmer Boling on Dec 02,1890.  Below is Joseph's father (Harvey} & mother (Louisa).  From the dates of William it looks as he is son of Harvey, and date of Mary looks like she is daughter of William?.  I believe from a Census report that Harvey was married 2x,

The page states the following:
1. Harvey Carpenter, born Nov 29,1821, Fleming Co., KY
2.  Louisa Marion Carpenter (Dillion) born, June 14,1840 Lewis Co., KY
3.  William A Carpenter Born, March 16, 1847
4. Mary Carpenter born Nov 30, 1878, Fleming Co., KY

Page 2 of Joseph M Carpenter Bible states that Harvey Carpenter and Louisa Dillon were married on December 29, 1861, and that Louisa Carpenter Dillon married James P Selsor on the 28th day of December 1882.  Page 1 corrections from the date of Harvey and Louisa's marriage William has to be from Harvey's first marriage and Mary may be from 2nd Marriage to Louisa.  I believe Harvey's first marriage was to Eliza Phizer as she shows up on a census report with Harvey in about 1850.
