Birth Certificate Gasper Edwards

 

Birth Cert Gasper Edwards 001

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
Sex:  Male
Color:  White
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.
