This is the family bible of David Vickary (of Lynn, Mass.), who has recorded the birth dates of his 11 children on the back of the New Testament title page. His 11 children, mostly all of whom were born in Lynn, Mass. between 1786 and 1809. They are: Thomas, David, Joseph, Polly, Robert, Hannah, John, Jeremiah, Sally, Esther Lindsay, and George. The frontispiece is inscribed in ink - "David Vickary - His Book". The bible is in poor condition. Quarto sized, bound in full calf, both worn, and chipped covers are detached. There is no spine. The binding is split in 3 places, and about the last 20 leaves are detached. There are no frontpapers, no title page to the Old Testament, the first 7 leaves of text are edge-chipped with varying degrees of loss of text. The tirle page of the New Testament has the publishing date of 1789, and this page is edge-chipped and worn, and is now in 2 pieces. The entries only include the childrens' names and birth dates. The fact that David Vickary and his children lived in Lynn, Mass. is taken from other sources. From these other sources I find that his daughter - Esther L. Vickary, married George Bacheller (of Lynn, Mass. 1807-1848) in 1828. They has 5 children, all born in Lynn, Mass. between 1828 and 1848 - George, Eliza, Edward, John, and Charles Bacheller.
