Adam and Sarah M. Cole New Testament

I have in my possession a very old New Testament that was given to me by my paternal Grandmother, Marjorie Lorraine Billings, married to Arthur Henningson. The Bible had been passed on to her from her grandmother, Francis A Cole, (daughter of Adam and Sarah Cole). Sarah Muckle's mother was Francis Amelia Cole, daughter of Adam Cole. Sarah stayed with her grandparents for the majority of her childhood, going back and forth between Cobleskill and Troy. Unfortunately, the inside cover page is missing, so the only thing left are as follows:

Inside hard cover is inscribed:
"given to me by Grandmother Cole 1906. Grandfather used to hold me on his lap and read it to me from the time I was an infant. Sarah M. Billings. "

On the inside back hardcover, there is the name "Lulu Cole" scribbled in pencil.
