Among the papers was a document I first thought might have come from a family Bible. I am not so sure that is the case, though. It looks to me like it was a series of loose papers that, at some point, was then cut down and bound. I know the paper was cut down because the handwriting flows right off the page. It makes you wonder what else was on these pages.
There are a total of six pages with the last page being blank. Here are the pages as they appear in the booklet.

On 18 September of 1848, Joshua Madeley and family immigrates to the United States. They arrive in Philadelphia and interestingly enough, several Scholfield's (spelled Scofield on the list) accompany the group. I clipped this image from Ancestry and it is part of the passenger list of the Saranak.
It appears James Scholfield b. 1768 is related to Joshua Madeley somehow ... I'm just not sure yet what that relationship is ...
