ALLES German Family Bible    *ALLES Family Name Search

Published 1882.

The Bible itself was published in 1882 and is in German. It's not in good shape at all but the real value is the family history entered into the Bible. It lists the births and deaths of this ALLES family from 1818 to 1889. Apparently, it was given as a gift to "Mrs. ALLES" from a Mrs. ALLEN Christmas 1882. 

Here are some of the names in the Bible:
John Alles b. 1818 d 1889
Mary Alles b. 1844
Eliza Alles b. 1846
Rachael Ann Alles b. 1849


There are several German names as well that seem to be connected to John. One of the last names is BAJERN. It'll take someone who reads German to decipher these entries but I suspect they are marriage dates early on.

1880 United States Federal Census Records show:

There are some John ALLES families in Raritan, Hunterdon County, New Jersey on page 147D but I am not at all sure these are the same people as listed in the Bible above.

This is a partial listing.  There are more entries but seller did not list all.  Other surname mentioned is MAYO.

Seller stated:  "Notation on front board says "FLOOD MAR 25th 1913". The only recorded major flood I could find on that date was in the Ohio/Indiana region. Apparently this Bible was retrieved out of the flood damage by a family member determined to keep this Bible for future generations."
