Gill Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, New York, American Bible Society.,

This is a fairly generic ABS Bible from the post-war
era. The cover is hanging on by a single cord, and the
spine is damaged with many pieces missing. On the deaths
page is a certified copy of the death certificate of Mary
Lockwood, New York City, who was born 8/14/1875 and
died 7/16/1968, at age 93. It is stamped 7/30/1968. She was
single, and I wonder if this might have been in her possession
upon her death, passing out of the family. This death
certificate, with NYC and Sandusky Ohio mentioned, is the
only hint of where this family lived in the Bible.

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
