I have in my possession the bible of my ggggrandparents. It was given to me a few months back by a very distant cousin who is getting on in years. I'm 34 and she thought it would be best to give it to someone who could hold on to it for a long time. I was elated that she would let me have a priceless family heirloom. I have more info on this family and am willing to share with anyone who is interested. Linda.
