Not sure how easy this scanned item is to read. It’s the photocopy of a 1865 birth certificate for Gasper Edwards, in Mason County, West Virginia.
Birth date: October 28, 1865.
Born at: (Just has an asterisk. Maybe that means he was born at home.)
Father: Ransaler Edwards (First time I’ve seen it spelled this way).
Mother: Louisa Edwards
Birth Record No. EFG at page 199.
This copy is dated September 1, 1977. I assume my mother sent a letter to the county clerk of Mason county, L. W. Getty, to get this photocopy. It is signed by the Deputy (deputy clerk?), Rolen Stewart.
