About this Item

This 1804 Bible belonged to Margaret Anderson (Crawford) Sanborn, the ninth of the ten children of Thomas Anderson (Andrewson) and his wife Jean (or Jane) Craige of Candia, New Hampshire. Thomas Anderson emigrated from Ireland around 1745 - 1750. Thomas died Oct. 10, 1804, and his wife died in June 1780. Margaret Anderson first married John Crawford, and afterwards John Sanborn. The Family Records pages contains the births of her parents ten children, three members of the Crawford family (originally spelled Craford), the deaths of 17 Andersons, 13 Crawfords, and 3 Wilsons (her sister Agnes Anderson having married a Thomas Wilson of Candia). There are no records of marriages. Thomas Anderson and Jean Craige's children were: William born 8/6/1756; Joseph born 6/19/1758; John born 12/19/1759; Thomas born 1/19/1762; Agnes born 5/14/1764; Joseph born 10/28/1766; Allan (or Allen) born 2/25/1769; Samuel born 8/23/1771; Margaret (sometimes spelled Margret or Marget) born 12/19 (or 9)/ 1773; David born 1/1/1779. Some dates may be off a few digits due to the difficulty in reading some handwriting. Also recorded are the births of Robert Craford on 8/29/1732; William Crawford on 1/9/1823; and Lucinda A. Crawford on 10/2/1824. The latest dated entries are for Thomas Anderson who died on 3/26/1866 aged either 62 or 64; and for Mary Anderson (Wheeler?) who died in 1869, aged 69. The Bible has an endpaper stamped "Jonathan Sanborn", with the pencilled-in names of Marget Sanborn and Chester on 2/21/1841. There are also some newspaper clippings and scraps of paper with additional information from the 1870's and 1880's regarding George W. Anderson, Joseph Anderson, Thomas Anderson, George Anderson Walker, Ann Anderson Walker, Townsend Walker, and Thomas Crawford. The Bible is bound in period, full bown leather, with some wormholing in the hinges. From other sources I find that related family names are Wilson, Graham, Sargent, and Ayer. Agnes Anderson married Thomas Wilson of Candia; Thomas Anderson married Elizabeth Graham, daughter of James Graham; Samuel Anderson married Anna and upon her death, Mary, daughters of Moses Sargent; David Anderson married Lydia Ayer. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
