Bible of Mount Desert, Maine, Native Rev. Hosea Kittredge and Wives Nancy (Fisher) and Mary Blake (Daggett) & Descendants

Comprehensive Commentary on the Holy Bible that belonged to Rev. Hosea Kittredge, a native of Mount Desert, Maine, and his wives Nancy (Fisher) Kittredge and Mary Blake (Daggett) Kittredge and their descendants.  The Bible contains three pages of Family Records in the back.

The images shown below are not true to color; the pages have more of a light peach tone.

On the first non-marbleized end paper, below:

The Bible measures approximately 10-3/4" by 7-1/4" by 2-1/2" and was published by Brattleboro Typographic Company of Brattleboro, Vermont, in 1837.  Tucked in the Bible:
  • invoice dated May 21, 1856 at Red Creek, New York, with religious notes on the reverse
  • legal sized paper with a listing of what appears to be towns or surnames and more religious notes
  • paper scrap that looks as though it might have served as an address pane, addressed to Rev. Hosea Kittredge, Mason, Michigan.
If you have corrections to the information below or information to share on the Kittredge, Fisher, Daggett and Clark families, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
