      I recently rediscovered some pages from an old family bible thatdetail the children of Thomas Rowntree. They were very difficult to read and I'm hoping to obtain clearer copies. This is what I was able to decipher, and I think most of it is correct. Maybe helpful to some other Rowntree/Rountree descendants. If I am able to get clearer copies I'll post whatever corrections may be necessary.
      Here's what I can make out from the pages:
      Page title Births
      Thos. Rowntree son of Richardson Rowntree March 27th Anno Domini 1778
      Mary Rowntree Daughter of James Gilbert born May 11th Anno Domini 1787
      Catherine Rowntree Daughter of Thos. & Mary born June 10th AD 1803
      James Rowntree February 7th AD 1806
      Mildred Rowntree ----(Sept.?) 19th(?) 1809
      Betsy Rowntree ....... 1811
      Nancy Rowntree.......1813 or 1815?
      Sarah Rowntree Daughter of M. Price 2nd wife of Thos. Rowntree born 18 January 1790
      Mary Rowntree Daughter of Thos. & Sarah Rowntree born July 16th AD 1816
      William Rowntree November 5th (or 3rd?) AD 1817 - this was my ancestor
      Anna Rowntree August 31st AD 1819

      Page titled Deaths
      Mary Rowntree first wife of Thos. Rowntree Daughter of James Gilbert Died April 5th 1815 aged 27 years 10 (?) mo 25 days
      Mildred Smith Daughter of Thos. Rowntree Died August 4th (or 11th?) AD 1826 Aged 17 years 11 (?) mo 15 days
      Thos. Rowntree Son of Richardson Rowntree Died July 15th AD 1828 aged 50 years 3 months
      and (? can't make it out) days.

      Page titled Births but lists slaves, and not sure if spelling is “bound” or “bornd”
      Daniel A Slave of Sarah Rowntree Born ...... 1834
      James Born in Oct. 1836
      Jane Bornd (bound?) 1832 (?) 1839
      Jess Bornd (Bound?) 9th April 1841
      Bill Bound 1843
      Bob in 1845
      Billy Bound Aug 1847
      George in 1849
      Benny 1851
      Melby Janes Baby 1851

      Page titled Marriages
      Thomas Rowntree son of Richardson Rowntree married Polly Gilbert March 11th Anno Domini 18__ (Can't make out anything except 18)
      Second Marriage to Sarah Price Daughter of Matthew Price Sept. (?) 10th Anno Dom. 1815
      Caty Rowntree married to ..............Nov. 28th AD 1820(?)
      Mildred Rowntree maried to Wm. S. Smith July 18th AD 1824
      James L. Rowntree married to Mucsadora (?) ….December 4th AD 1825
      Betsy Rowntree Married Felix Landess(?) the 18th June 1826
      Nancy Rowntree Married to Wm. Smith the 22nd (23rd?) October 1827
      Mary Rowntree Married to ....... on the 20th of May 1834
      Ann Rowntree Married to ..... on the 23rd of ..... 1840
      W G Rowntree .......... This is my ancestor, funny that it's the last entry and can hardly read anything more than his name, but we know he married Mary E Mayfield, they were my great grandmother's grandparents.
      W G Rowntree Married to Mary E Mayfield……..July (?) 184…..
      Anyway, that's my interpretation of the pages, perhaps someone out there has information to correct or complete what I have here.
