Henry Palmer Bible

This Bible, in poor condition, was given to me by my great uncle Vanetin Palmer before his death at Kingston, N.Y., and was thought to be the Bible of his parents Henry and Minna Ann Palmer of Gilboa, N.Y., handed down to his sister Hattie, then to him. It is a small Bible printed by the American Bible Society of New York and dated 1893. Most of this same information will be found in the Hattie Palmer Bible. Donald G. Palmer
