     This Dutcher Bible was passed from Mae (Dutcher) Newbern to her daughter Olive (Newbern) James and then to Fred and Louise (Flora) Newbern.  I have Louise's permission to submit these pages here.  We appreciate her generosity in sharing this family history.
     It appears that the first entries are made by someone in the Jacob Dutcher family but beginning with the Olive G. Gallop birth entry on the second page, the handwriting changes. The last three death entries appear to be in the handwriting of a third person, most likely Mae D. Newbern.

Glenda's Genealogical Notes:
Jacob P. Dutcher records:
   1820 Sullivan Co., NY - 2m 0-10; 1m 16-26; 1m 26-45; 1f 0-10; 2f 26-45
   1830 Stanford, Dutchess Co., NY - 2m 5-10; 1m 10-15; 1m 15-20; 1m 40-50; 1f 5-10; 1f 15-20; 2f 40-50
   1840 Conesville, Schoharie Co., NY - 1m 15-20; 1m 50-60; 1f 5-10; 1f 15-20; 1f 50-60

   Tombstone in West Conesville Cemetery, Conesville, NY - Jacob P. Dutcher died Aug. 12, 1871 age 83
A posting on the Dutcher Message Board in 2000 says that Margaret (Smith) Dutcher, 1st wife of Jacob P. Dutcher, was born Nov. 21, 1785 and died December 20, 1832 and from the census records it would seem that this is probably correct.  It appears that his 2nd wife is Emma and his 3rd is Elizabeth, however, neither of their maiden names are known to me and neither of them are listed in the Bible.
