About this Item

This 1803 Bible belonged to Gideon Dexter (born on April 7, 1781 in Rochester, Mass.) and his wife Mary (born on Dec. 15, 1783). In the 4 page "Family Records" section have been recorded the births of their 9 children, and 13 additional grandchildren and great grand children. 5 marriages are recorded: Gideon and Mary Dexter married on Oct. 15, 1804; John and Hannah Dexter on Nov. 12, 1839; James L. Dexter and Mary S. Gray on Oct. 6, 1884; John C. Dexter and Florence G. on Nov. 24, 1904; and Lillian C.Dexter to Luen(?) M. Johnson on Jan. 1, 1924. Gideon and Mary Dexter's 9 children were: Warren, Samuel, Lurana, Ephram, Calvin, John, Gideon, Joseph , and Rufus, with recorded birth dates between 1805 and 1823. 3 grandchildren were John S. Dexter, Robert L. Dexter, and James L. Dexter, with birth dates between 1843 and 1859. 7 grandchildren were Florence G. Dexter, Lillian C. Dexter, Doris S. Dexter, Chester S. Dexter, Marjorie C. Dexter, Chester G. Dexter, and Alvin C. Dexter, with birth dates between 1885 and 1910. Ruth Johnson and Luen(?) Johnson were born in 1926 and 1929. From other sources I find that Gideon Dexter was one of eleven children born in Rochester, Mass. to Ephraim Dexter (born on Dec. 31, 1741 and his wife Keziah (Tobey) who were married on Dec. 29, 1771. His 10 siblings were: Martha, Anna, Keziah, Luke, Ephraim, Thomas, Jane, Alden, Polly, and Alice, who were born between 1772 and 1792. The Bible is generally very clean, with well attached covers, with the front cover having some cracking. Bound in full, dark brown leather, with about one inch of each of the ends of the spine chipped away. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15770
