I was sent the following message and would like to help reunite this Bible with the right family. If this is your family you can contact Marion Hanson
Help! What should I do with
this. I came into possession (at a resale
shop) of an old bible dated 1851 in very poor condition. Do these folk
belong to any of you?

has his name on the first page.
