Wade - in the Watkins bible (that is in Cymraeg) Elinor Daniels Watkins spells her name "Elinor". In the old bible the handwriting changes after Elinor dies and the new babies births are written in a new script which I think is Rachel Richard Watkins writing, but after John Watkins dies and Rachel remarries to Joseph Hynus, a new handwriting shows up for their new baby. Joseph was killed just outside of Atlanta, Georgia in "Sherman's March". Elinor has her birth as 1828 Cardiganshire.

The bible has several passages earmarked which was of interest to me. Passages on child birth and losing love ones in times of war. Rich
