About this Item

This family Bible, from about 1880, contains genealogical records of the McGovern, Kehoe, and Furlong families of Salem and Beverly, Mass. It originally belonged to Anna Kehoe, who has inscribed the Bible both on the inner cover and on the frontpaper: "From Anna Kehoe / to her loving sister / Anne Eliza / August 2, 1882". Most of the genealogical entries concern Patrick F. McGovern and Anne Elizabeth Kehoe, who were married at Salem, Mass. on Sept. 27, 1894. A few entries concern the marriage of Patrick Furlong and Catherine Kehoe, who were married at Salem, Mass. on August 4, 1886, and their 3 children: Margerette Mary (1887), Catherine Josephine (1890 or 1891) and Thomas Edward Furlong (1892). About 20 births are recorded for the McGovern family, starting with Emmett F. McGovern on August 8, 1895. Patrick and Anne's childrens' births; Ernest Crofton McGovern (June 13, 1899) and Eva Louise McGovern (April 8, 1898). Edward Patrick McGovern on Oct. 17, 1905; Emmet's daughters; Anna M.

All the births took place in Salem or Beverly, Mass. and the home street address is given in most of these records. About 11 dates of deaths are recorded starting with Anne Elizabeth Kehoe's parents, John Kehoe on July 18, 1886, and Catherine Kehoe on March 28, 1888. 2 of Catherine's sisters are recorded: Julie Kehoe on Nov. 9, 1889, and Mary Kehoe on Feb. 2, 1946 (born in 1859).
