Bible Notes of Mattie Elisabeth (Rice) Howard


This free-space page was created to collect in one place the available information concerning a bible record created by Martha "Mattie" (Rice) Howard in 1868, in which she wrote an account of her great-great grand parents Elisha Walling and Mary Blevins and their children. This often-quoted record is difficult to access directly because it is contained in the "Allen Papers," a collection of genealogical papers and research notes that belonged to Penelope Johnson Allen who appears to have been active in research in the late 1930s. The Allen Papers are part of the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection of the East Tennessee History Center, in Knoxville Tennessee.

The original bible records appear to be lost, but a transcribed copy entitled "Rice Family Records of Riceville and Athens Tennessee Notes from records set down by Mattie Elisabeth Rice Howard - 1868- Copied by Mary C. Howard 2201 E. 14th S, Chattanooga, Tennessee," dated May 20, 1939, is included in the Allen Papers.

When time permits, I plan to visit this library, access the original collection, and create image copies of these bible records which will be posted on this page.

Mahar Transcription

Until the originals can be imaged and posted on this page, the record may be accessed via a transcription of the key documents published by Daniel Mahar posted to Genealogy.com on 20 May 20 2000 (last accessed 26 May 2021). If the link to the Mahar transcription on Genealogy.com breaks, a copy is also available from the Internet Archive Wayback Machine here: https://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/rice/3514/ : accessed 26 May 2021.
