1 Nephi 1:1 – sense line 1

Notes:

I Nephi – The Book of Mormon begins with an author who is writing in the first person.

In his book titled “Understanding the Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Guide,” Grant Hardy writes:

“From its first verses, the extended first-person narrative of Nephi offers a mode of writing almost entirely absent from the Hebrew Bible (the only exceptions are a few chapters of Ezra-Nehemiah). This means that the primary narrators of the Book of Mormon—Nephi, Mormon, and Moroni—are accessible to readers in a way that the dominant narrative voice of the Bible is not.”

having been – an early indicator that the author is writing a retrospective record.

goodly parents” – there has been some discussion, by a variety of authors, as to whether the word “goodly” is referring to the overall character of Nephi’s parents or their accumulated wealth.

Question: Who are the parents of Franciscus Bartholomeus?

Based on information on FamilySearch.org, I am looking to find out where the information ends on each genealogical line.

Daniel Hall Bartholomew (myself-living)

my father: Daniel Ray Bartholomew (living)

his father: Calvin Henry Bartholomew (1917-1991)

his father – Ray Calvin Bartholomew (1888-1977)

his father – Joseph Bartholomew, Jr. (1850-1912)

his father – Joseph Bartholomew Sr. (1820-1901)

his father – John Bartholomew (1792-1827)

his father – General Joseph Bartholomew (1766-1840)

his father – Daniel Bartholomew (1708-1777)

his father – Johan John Bartholomew (1700-1784)

his father – Jacobus Bartholomeus (1678-1768)

his father – Franciscus Bartholomeus (1653-Deceased)

At this point the questions begin.

FamilySearch does not have information for either the father or mother of Franciscus Bartholomeus. According to FamilySearch, we have the following specifics about Franciscus Bartholomeus:

Birth – 1653

Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

Christening – 17 February 1653
Geldrop, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands

He was married to a woman named Joanna Clauden – for her it appears we have nothing but a name – no birth date, no death date and no specific marriage date.

There is no specific death date for Franciscus – only the word Deceased.
