Jerry notes:  I went through it again and found a couple of errors.  It shows Gideon Fox being born Feb. 20, 1773 and death on Sep. 7 1771. And, notice that T. D. Fox was recorded as being born on March 8, 1824, and (under deaths) Thomas Dent, Jr. Fox as having died on Sep. 15th, 1814..52 years5 months and 11 days.  There was either and error in the original transcription, or the writer made the error. In reviewing the Bible text at the bottom,it appears that Lucy Dent Fox may have made some of the entries. Nevertheless, if I do get to see the original, I am going to transcribe it and if I can, make original copies.
