14.  Email from descendant, including an image of the "Births" page from what appears to be our subject's Family Bible.  The handwriting is very difficult to read, and some entries are badly faded.  Only Lockey is missing.  Unfortunately, I cannot make out the names of the twins born 1871, nor can I make out Smith's first name, which appears abbreviated (Jas? Jos? Jno?).
