About this Item

This Bible belonged to Judge Nicholas Stillwell and his wife, Sarah S. (Voorhies) (Voorhees), of Gravesend, Long Island, New York. According to an 1885 newspaper obituary clipping in the Bible, Judge Stillwell was a direct descendant of "Indian Killer" Nicholas Stillwell, one of the original settlers and grantees of the town. Judge Stillwell was an associate justice of the county and of the Supreme Court. The front cover has a leather label reading "Nicholas Stillwell".
