Family Bible *FULLER Family Name Search
One page has an inscription dated 1793. A Gift to Jacob NASH, b. 1766, m. Susanna, from his mother, Molly Justine.
One page reads:
Electy Daughter of Jacob & Susanna NASH was born in October the 6 1792.

Next page reads:
Chester M. FULLER was born April 27th 1823.
Elvira A. FULLER was born November 1st 1834.
Eckford M. FULLER was born April 1st 1825.
The above is a transcript of only two pages which were shown in photos. Susannah's maiden name was WEBSTER and this family seems to have lived in Goshen, Hampshire, MA. In a preliminary study of information about this family found online, there are a lot of mistakes being made, if this Family Bible data is correct.
There are about 10 pages of writing. Pages were kept to the 1830's, going to the Fuller family towards the 20's. Also, misc. notes to boards etc. I think the family was in the old country at least through the 1790's or so, just from the phrasing.
