Benjamin/Rockwell Bible and inserts
Publication: Owned by Robert W. Benjamin of Phoenix, Arizona. The Bible is the Benjamin Bible. The bible was published in 1873 and there is an inscription that it was bought by GW Benjamin in 1881. There are three inserted pages of Rockwell history recording John J. Rockwell, his wife Nancy Ann Potter, and their ten children. The last entry records the death of William Rockwell in 1918, although following this entry on the Deaths page is a synopsis of the death dates prior to William's and a repeat of the 1918 death date of William. Many of the dates in this bible are not known to be recorded elsewhere.

Show Details Note: The inserted pages of Rockwell history were maintained from about 1848-1850 ‎(there is a break in hands between those dates on the births page)‎ and 1918, the date of the last entry.

In 1850 the John J. Rockwell family was in Morgan Co., VA ‎(now WV)‎. The first hand is very neat and practiced. Ann Potter is marked as illiterate in the 1850 census, so John J. is the most likely author, except this hand bears no similarity to his signature on his 1834 marriage certificate, which is much rougher. Perhaps it was one of the older boys - Peter or Edward - who were 16 and 14 in 1850. The first hand uses the construction eg "March the 17 1848" for dates, perhaps indicative of youthful inexperience. The second hand, commencing in 1850, uses a similar construction, and may be the same hand as the first with a year or two more education. A biographical sketch of Peter mentions his preparation in a log schoolhouse in Morgan county.
