Transcriber's Notes:
The information above is supposed to be from the Bible that belonged to John W. MELTON.  I copied it just as it was written in the Bible — Emmer should be Emma; Luer, I think, is supposed to be Lara/Laura; Monro is Monroe; Sallee is Sallie; and I believe Mattis is supposed to be Mattie.  There are probably variations in the dates between the other Bibles shown below.

I do not know Walter R. McDONALD, Mary F. ERWIN or their children, nor do I know how they are related to the MELTONs.  If anyone knows, please e-mail me.  ~ Karen Manasco
