Records from OLD WAIT BIBLE Back to Bible Index

Submitted By Frances Wait Waldrup

I tracked down the Wait Family Bible where it was listed as going to my gr grandfather, Philip Wait's, daughter, Peachey Wait Tinney. I searched everywhere for this family and two yrs ago found an article in "Howard County Heritage" book, in Nashville, Ark, where this Tinney family along with other Wait descendants went before Civil War. There are many Laurens County names I recognized in this book connected to my Wait Family, for instance, Clardy, Anderson, Graves and Tinney. You can imagine how very thrilled I was when I found a Tinney relative who had the Bible. The Bible was in horrible condition as it was in a fire at the old Tinney home and the ancestor gave the Bible to someone in Nashville who was interested in genealogy and cannot remember her name. Anyway, she had copies of the stats and that is what I have as follows: They are copied with no spelling corrections. The parentheses are mine.
