Births & Deaths; A Register

As you can see, this small paper booklet has been subject to some damage. The scans have been done with a contrasting colored paper in back of the pages so the material underneath will not be seen. Pages are numbered for convenience with blank pages not being scanned or numbered. Only the names are listed. See the images (about 300 kb each) for details.

The original entries use the traditional Quaker dating style of month numbers (9th mo) instead of a name. The entries are best quoted exactly as they are written, instead of assuming that January or March was the first month.

Pinned (literally - with a straight pin) into the back of the above are pages containing an essay or sermon about teaching children. It's not easy to read, but I have included the scans here for anyone interested in Quaker philosophy. Something seems to be missing in the beginning.
