The panther

Rebecca used to tell her family a story about when she was a young girl, probably in southern Indiana. She said a panther tried to get in their cabin one night, and her mother built up the fire so it couldn't get down the chimney. The cat then began to paw under the door, and Deborah Martin placed an iron pan in its way so it couldn't dig its way in.
Told by Peggy Ray (Family Relative )

Written in very bold ink, is "Clarissa Martin was born 22 of November 1831, and died the 9 of June 1862 (or 1863)" Clarissa was Rebecca's sister, and was married to Rebecca's step-son, Joseph Henry Allen. Written in faded ink underneath that, are the births of Rebecca's two sons, Elijah B and Elisha B. Under that, various grandchildren's births are recorded.
