Sturgess Bible

This is a pair of books owned by the same woman. One is a Catholic
"Manual of Prayers" published by John Murphy Company in 1916, and
the other is a small (Minion. 24 mo.) New Testament from A.J. Holman
and Company, copyright 1895.

Both pieces are in good condition, but with minimal genealogical
information. This family appears to be from Massachusetts from the
towns mentioned. There are photos and ephemera that contribute to the
overall family picture here.
