  • This book lacks a title page and most of the Old Testament is missing. The New Testament portion begins with Matthew, chapter 15. The concordance title page has, therefore, been imaged as the principle bibliographic clue to this printing of the Bible.
  • David and Martha Whitlock’s daughter, Lucy Ann Whitlock (1789–1826) married Ralph Wingfield (son of Thomas and Anna Wingfield) in 1815. Lucy Ann and Ralph’s granddaughter, Laura Wingfield (b.1859–60, died after 1920), annotated the family pages.
  • Slave births and some deaths are recorded in the family Bible. An alphabetical list of the enslaved men and women lined up with the names of slaves in the wills of Thomas Wingfield (1837) and Martha Whitlock (1825) has been compiled.
