Note: Everything prior to 1870 occurred in Schuyler County, afterwards was various counties in SW Iowa.

Inside the front cover of the bible is written:

Dec – 8th 1803 Moses S. Foster Vergeua VT 1)Vergennes VT in Addison Co. is the closest I could come to this town name, It would seem logical that this was perhaps Isaac Newton Foster’s father, but it is not proven.

Also inside the front cover was written-

This book of books by God was given,
Our lamp on earth
And guide to heaven.
