From the Bible of Bryant Lester. It was printed in 1817, so it has entries which pre-date it back to 1749. Last entry was 1856. There were several Bryant Lesters, and I believe this Bible to be from the marriage of Bryant Lester and Susan Hutcheson, the parents of Charlotte Merrit Lester.
They were married in 1805-Harry Johnson.
