March 28, 1843 VILLAGE RECORD
Marriage On Tuesday evening, the 14th inst., by the Rev. A. Babbit, Rev. JAMES LATTA, of Octorara, Chester county, to Miss ELIZABETH SHIPPEN, daughter of the late Robert Shippen, Esq. of Drumore, Lancaster county. http://www.rootsweb.com/~paslchs/Drumorenews.html
Note: Robert Shippen died Dec. 31, 1840 and is buried in the Chestnut Level Presbyterian Cemetery, as is Rev. James Latta (#1) of Br. 8 and his wife, Mary Alison Latta.

Shippen, Elizabeth. Manuscript on paper, in English.
Lancaster County, PA, 1831–42. 8vo (19.7 cm, 7.75"). [134 (approx. 67 blank)] pp.
Commonplace book both of transcribed pieces (e.g., Heber, Cowper, Roscoe, Mrs. Barbauld, and Thomas Hayes Bayly, plus bits from The Christian Disciple) and original contributions from Miss Shippen and a large number of her friends and relatives. Both the Shippen family and the next-best represented family in this volume, the Puseys, were well established in the greater Philadelphia area by the beginning of the 19th century; and prominent Philadelphians appear here, including Margaret Rhees (wife of Dr. Benjamin Rush Rhees, the first dean of Jefferson Medical College, whose poem "On the Order of the Books of the New Testament" was "Copied [in] by a Friend of the Author"). Other specific place inscriptions include such Pennsylvania locations such as Pottstown, Meadville, Center[re]ville, Fairview, and Mechanics Grove, with outliers such as Wilmington and "Fonte Salutis." An obituary apparently from a Hagerstown, Maryland, newspaper is copied in, and one poem regrets leaving "lov'd Stapely." Two items are dated at "Chestnut Level," i.e., Chestnut Level in Lancaster Co., Pennsylvania; Elizabeth Shippen married the Rev. James Latta (whose similarly named ancestor had been the pastor at the Chestnut Level Presbyterian Church from 1771 to 1801), and one of the several acrostics in this book-one of its last entries - is "An acrostic on the name of an infant, a favourite niece of the author," with the lines spelling out "Margaret Ann Latta." Notable Lancaster family names include Housekeeper, Swift, Grubb, Snyder and Parry.
reading “To Miss Elizabeth Shippen from her aunt Margaret Shippen, Phila[delphia] March 1831.”
• Contemporary half morocco with marbled paper sides, leather edges tooled in gilt, spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped title “Album”; binding lightly worn, with extremities rubbed. Two leaves excised, with a few leaves deliberately affixed to one another. Occasional light spotting, generally internally clean. A remarkable record of the interconnections, thoughts, and literary tastes of upper-crust 19th-century Pennsylvanians.
