Many thanks to Bill Gilliland, a great-grandson of Isabell "Belle" and Peter Gilliland, for generously sharing these pages from Belle's family Bible.
Peter Gilliland, born July 1853 to Nathan M. Gilliland and Lydia Graham of Jackson County, Ohio, is another descendant of Nathan Gilliland of Augusta County, Virginia. On March 31st, 1875, Peter married Isabell "Belle" Brunton, daughter of William W. and Priscilla Masters. Peter and Belle were laid to rest at the Hamilton-McCoy Cemetery and a photo of their tombstone is included in the album created for Hamilton-McCoy.
In future I hope to provide a transcription with a bit of information on each name recorded in Belle's family Bible.
