Stice Bible

This Bible was submitted by Susan Norine Stice.

"This Bible was purchased in a small town in Kansas by an antique collector. This gentleman stated the Bible was purchased at a sale and when he questioned the elderly gentleman having the sale, he stated his father was a Stice, but that he was adopted and now that his father was dead, he did not wish to keep the Bible.

I purchased the Bible on Ebay from the antique collector. The copyright date inside is 1834. Susan Norine Stice

The following is information found in the Stice/Seybold/Wellman Family Bible."
