Cumings Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Stereotype Edition, New York, Stereotyped by A. Chandler
for the American Bible Society, 1837. Not in Hills, but
these smallish ABS editions are fairly common. 12 mo.

This Bible's binding remains intact and in good condition,
but there are pages missing at the end (right after the
General Epistle of James). I assume that some genealogy
was lost with it, as the remaining pages sound incomplete.

The LDS site has Sumner Cummings (same birth date) born in
New Salem township, Franklin County, Massachusetts and married
to Emily Goodnow October 30, 1850.
