      Shadrack Dickinson Family Bible

      Note: This Bible was brought from North Carolina by Patience Dickinson Turner when she came to Alabama about 1836 with her two sons, Henry Grantham Turner and Benjamin Dickinson Turner, and her daughter, Elizabeth Turner. They first went to Sumter County, Alabama, where she died in 1851. Her will is probated in that county. Patience Dickinson Turner was the great grandmother of Swepson James Taylor, who was my grandfather. No place of residence is given in this Bible record, but other family papers indicated that the Dickinson family lived in Wayne, Edgecomb and Bertie Counties, North Carolina. The 1790 Census shows Shadrack Dickinson and Daniel Dickinson living in the New Bern District, Wayne County, North Carolina. This Dickinson Bible survived Hurricane Camille, which struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast on Sunday night, August 17, 1969.
