Our Tyree Family Bible
These are the birth, death, and marriage notations included in the Tyree Family Bible, kept by Aunt Virginia all these years. This edition of the Bible was published in Philadelphia by A. J. Holman & Co. in 1875. Therefore all the entries must have been made after that date. The family notations are situated between the Old and New Testaments. Unfortunately, the text, though handwritten beautifully with flourishes, is occasionally illegible. When this occurs, I substitute a question mark. Aunt Virginia and I had to smile when we saw Pete Tyree's baby scribble on the fourth page, penned at age 22 months. Virginia tells me that Woodson had him do this for posterity.
First page is a certificate of Holy Matrimony:
"This is to certify that Andrew Woodson Tyree, M.D. of Virginia and Mary Juanna Houston of Lasalle Co., Illinois were by me united together in Holy Matrimony on the fourth day of November in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty Eight in the presence of J. Q. Houston."
