John Klein Family 
Bible

Typed transcript of this bible in the possession of Cairo Public Library.

This bible was found in a box of old tools in the cellar of a house in Catskill which is being cleaned out because the house was for sale. It was very mildewed and water-stained - so it was very hard to read some of the writing. The bible is in the possession of Alan G. Baker, Albany, NY, who salvaged it for its records. Originally transcribed by Alan Baker.
