Coburn Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, American Bible Society, 1850.

This Bible is in fair-good condition, with the original binding
intact but chipping and coming loose. The pages all appear
to be present, but there is scattered foxing and tanning. An
average 12mo ABS Bible. 73rd edition.

I think most of the family record entries are those of John
Coburn, as the death of Cornelia is written in the same hand.

Transcribed by and in the possession of Tracy St. Claire,
. This Bible was returned to descendant
Richard Poll of Kentucky.
