Buckner Family Bible Records

Bible Records of the Buckner Family
transcribed by Bettie Albright
These records were submitted by Walter Craig Davidson, 1309 E. Brown St., Llano, Texas 78643-2405 [ there is no date indicating when this was submitted – Bettie Albright]
  “The 1823 Bible that begins on page 2, and the 1822 Bible that begins on page 11, are bound as one volume. It is in the possession of Mrs. Dorothy Elise Ebbs Daugherty, Jr., Buckner descendent, of Akins, SC. The pages copied here as having been written by hand, on plain paper, are actually sewn into the Bible by heavy thread forces through some 20 pages. When and by whom this was done is a matter of conjecture, but it seems evident that it was many years ago.
  The 1881 Bible that begins on pate 17, is in the possession of Mrs. Katherine Louise Ebbs Warren of Horseshoe, NC. Mrs. Warren and Mrs. Daughherty are sister. They descend from the Buckners through Ida Eloise Buckner Ebbs, daughter of Stephen Morgan Buckner and his wife Louisa Jane Kuykendahl. Stephen Morgan Buckner, who was a son of John Buckner, of Burke Co. NC.
  It was this Eloise Buckner Ebbs (E. B Ebbs) who copied the Buckner family information shown in her handwriting on page 15. She added the name of John, correctly, I believe, the death entry at the top of page 8, where several entries give only the relationship w/o a name.”
