My knowledge of the Bible came to light through one of my best contacts made through the Internet ever internet contacts, with a direct Danson descendant, who had in her possession the family bible and copied me these page of scrawled writing.
The page (left) headed January 4 1827 “Be good to the poor”
features, among the signatures, Henry Danson (senior) , Elizabeth Danson (his wife) and James Danson (son); also an entry “January 1st 1827 James Danson, Sone of Henry Danson” – which must mark the death of Henry’s youngest son at the age of 15. Another entry that can be deciphered is for “Elen (?) Simpson Borne 29 October 1811”
Sole entry on another page (below) reads “January 4 1827 Henry Danson Son of Henry Danson Born 25 of July 1806”. This entry was dated just after the death of Henry' s brother James, so is there a signficance in this?
