Bible Records in a Newspaper

While perusing the Pine Plains Herald (Dutchess County, New York) at FultonHistory, I came across an article from 1880 describing family records in a bible.  The surname is Strever, a variant of Striebel.  Related surnames include Hoysradt and Dings.  Children were born in the 1700s and early 1800s.

If anyone has these actual pages from the bible, let us know.  It will be interesting to see if this bible or any other transcripts survived.
