OLD CATHOLIC BIBLE CONTENTS

In the summer of 1960 an old Catholic Bible (printed in 1884), was purchased in a pawn shop in Denver, Colorado.

Nothing is written in the Bible, the family sheets are all blank. But tucked in between the pages were three wonderful photos (no names, dates or places), a newspaper obituary for Susan Cline (Mrs. James) who died 22 June 1893. This bible seems to belong to descandants (sic) of James & Susan Cline. James died 29 Dec. 1887, Cass Co.,, Iowa and buried in the Evergreen Cemetery at Anita. they had eleven children, 6 boys and 5 girls. (one residing in Montana.)

The pictures are of an old man, the same man in a room with three sewing machines, which could have been a shoe repair shop. The last picture was taken on a ranch and shows pens of sheep.

Interested descendants should contact either: Laura M. Lee, 2955 Park Place Drive, Lincoln, NE 68506 or Ruth Anna Hicks, 6703 Holdrege St, Lincoln, Ne 68505-1659.
