Source: The Genealogy of a Garrigues Family, Electronic Library, online (http://www.garrigus-family.com), Robert Garrigus, rgarrigus@hotmail.com (9579 Sea Shadow, Columbia, MD 21046), downloaded (add date). Mr. Garrigus further cites: Family Data, David and Abigail Garrigus’ Family Bible, King James Edition, (Philadelphia: Printed for Mathew Carey, No. 118, Market Street, October 20th, 1801), unpaginated, original bible pages are in the holdings of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP), 215 S. Broad Street, 7th Floor, Philadelphia, PA, This bible was supposedly passed from David and Abigail Garrigus to their son Timothy L. Garrigus. It was subsequently passed to Timothy’s son Milton Garrigus.  Also named as owners of the bible are: David Garrigus Doty [grandchild of David and Abigail via Mary] and Elizabeth A. “Betty” Garrigus. In 1938 the original bible was in the holdings of Edmund Garrigues of Massillon, Ohio. He later donated this item to the GSP. In the latter part of the 20th century, space wanting, the genealogical data from such bibles were removed and placed in vertical files for posterity. These pages are in file BR Ga. Edmund Garrigues included many notes with the bible indicating that the property information was written in David’s handwriting. He also noted that Milton Garrigus had made subsequent entries in this bible and also included changes to select items. It is probable that Milton Garrigus attempted to enter as much data as he remembered before giving the bible to Edmund Garrigus as to present the most complete information possible. Edmund Garrigues too entered some marginal information. These alterations/additions are highlighted in italics to differentiate them from the original entries. Robert Garrigus of Columbia, Howard County, MD transcribed verbatim this information in February 2002 from photocopies of the original pages. All information is paginated exactly as it is on the original pages.
