Davis Bible

This Bible was purchased on eBay. I am not
related to the family.

This Bible is in great shape, because it has been
rebound along the way.

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments.
Philadelphia, Printed and Published by Mathew Carey.

In the Bible is a letter dated October 10th, '67.
It looks to be 1867 due to the handwriting.

Internet sources place these families in Massachusetts.
