James W. Primrose Weddings and Funerals Book

My great-grandfather – James W. Primrose – was a circuit pastor in the Midwest at the turn of the century.

The book contains marriage records in the front, 27 of them. Flip the book over and the funerals are recorded in the back, starting with the back cover and working toward the front. I’ve included what I’ll call the introductory page as written by my grandfather Rev. Leonard Eastman (James Primrose’s son-in-law.)

“This was given to me by Mother Primrose on May 26, 1964. Rev. Leonard Eastman

Mrs. May H. Primrose, who made the gift of this book to me went to be in the presence of the Lord on November 26, 1973 at approx. 6:15pm”
