Excerpt: ... OLD RECORDS OF THE FOULKE, SKIRM, TAYLOE, COALMAN, "WOOLLEY, AND GASKILL FAMILIES. [The Bible from which this record is taken, an old black-letter folio, was brought to this country in the year 1677, by Thomas Foulke, one of the Commissioners for the Province of West New Jersey,1 who was born in Derbyshire2 in 1624, and is now in the possession of one of his descendants, Mrs. Mary C.
