Klock Family Bible

I recently purchased a large Old Family Bible on E-Bay that belonged to Augustus Klock. Augustus Klock was born January 20, 1827 and died March 17, 1914. He married Lany A. Fox, March 8, 1848. She was born August 22, 1825 and died January 31, 1908. They had five children, Wallace, Emma, Eugene, Ella and Walter.

“In his youth, Augustus Klock was bound out, as was the custom those days, to work for Peter Fox until he was twenty one years of age. At the expiration of his time he married the daughter of his employer and began farming for himself, and later occupied the farm of his father-in-law, Peter Fox, who settled there in 1788, and who was a native of Montgomery County, NY. Augustus died Mar. 17, 1914. Resided in the town of Schuyler, Herkimer Co. NY.,” according to the Sherman O. Klock Genealogy.

The Bible somehow ended up in Battle Creek, Michigan and on E-Bay. The bible contains several old family pictures as well as dates of birth and marriages and deaths. The Bible was published in Philadelphia by the Quaker City Publishing Company in 1872.

I have the line of Augustus Klock as follows:
Augustas Klock (John Klock, who married Elizabeth Lackey, Jacob I. Klock, who married Anna Devendorf, John J. Klock who married Catherine Foltz, Johannes J. Klock who married Ann Margaretha Fox, and Hendrick Klock.)

The following is the information contained in the Bible:
