Images of this Bible were posted on the Heritage Genealogical Society's Facebook page in July 2018 by Wyatt Cerri whose Mother is in possession of the Bible. The Bible is not in good shape except for the last page and indeed it appears several places have been scotch taped together making it impossible to read except from the original and those places are noted. The genealogical pages have been removed from the Bible for their protection. Please make note that the last page which is NOT part of this Bible.

Please note that the below page is NOT part of this Bible but the page which is a photo copy was in the Bible. The information was in a different hand and appears to have been copied from an older Bible with a different border. Mr. Cerri noted the paper is different and it is cut off at the edges.

If anyone knows what Bible this information came from and has the entire Bible, please let us know.
