My father bought a Bible with handwritten records of the 'Dodd' family at a garage sale in 1979 in Fanwood NJ.

On 1 Aug 20, I spoke with a living descendant about ggggrandfather Absalom Dodd-5411, b. 1777, Sussex Delaware, United States. Absalom is the first record included with the Bible, noted as married in 1800 to Hester Warrington. The recipient lives in the same county and is overjoyed knowing about this heirloom being returned to its family!

Now we are trying to figure out how the showed up in NJ. I will track down a 'Dodd' classmate for clues!
