Bless my sweet mother's heart. She started doing genealogy in the late 70s. She had an aunt Harriet Mulford Long. Harriet and her siblings never had any children. Thus, the genealogical items found in Harriet's home when she passed, were give to my mother's mother. Thus, my grandmother gave the items to my mother when she showed an interest in family history research.

In the 35 years that transpired, my mother did not preserve the artifacts she obtained. Some of them were lost or discharged as my mother's own life circumstances changed. One of the items my mother received was the Mulford Family Bible. In addition to keeping the bible, she made a transcription of the contents.

When I received the contents of my mother's genealogical records some years ago, there was no bible. The only thing I have left is the transcription she made above. For what it's worth, I'm sharing this information. Although my mother sought to follow this line because of her love for her great aunt Harriet, I have no interest in pursuing this line at this time. However, someone Mulford descendant might want this information.
