Clara Strowbridge Family Bible
from Red Cove

The bible was found in the home of her daughter (Clara Strowbridge
b. Aug 10 1920 - still living) in Grand Bank.

This is a transcription of scans made of photocopies Ron Bygott received from his wife's (paternal)
grandmother's family bible.  Clara Strowbridge (nee Lawrence) was born Feb. 16, 1897
in Red Cove. She died Feb. 4 1990 and is buried in the Anglican Cemetery in
Grand Bank (headstone elsewhere on Site). She married John James
Strowbridge (Jan. 4 1895 - 12 June 1963) on June 12, 1918,
and reported to be buried in Red Cove.

In case there is any confusion: Clara Strowbridge b. 1920 is the daughter
of Clara Strowbridge b. 1897 and she did not have to change her name
at marriage as she married Charles Strowbridge (no relation) in 1938.

It contains entries from 1895 to 2004.
