John Locke Bible

This bible was generously loaned to me by my father's first cousin, Kay (Day) McDonald of Thorburne, NS.   It had been in the possession of her grandmother, Catherine Longhurst, passed down probably through Catherine's stepfather, Jonathan Locke, the youngest son of John Locke.   It was transcribed circa 1980 by Ann Capstick.   Another John Locke Bible has been recorded in the Nova Scotia Genealogist Vol. VIII/3, submitted by Mrs. Helen Ghent, PO Box 205, Lockeport, NS B0T 1L0.   The NSG Bible contains additional information, but regarding the children's births, with some minor differences, the information is essentially the same.
