Query: I have in my possession, a Bible which is inscribe on the front "Presented by the Ladies of Walker and Marion to the Hublersburg Division of the S. of T.". The Bible belonged to my ggfather Harrison CLEVENSTINE who came to Illinois from Pa. in 1854. Harrison's parents, Christian CLEVENSTINE and Mary WILLIAMS CLEVENSTINE are both listed as having died at Hublersburg. Does anyone know what the "S. and T." listed on the front of the Bible stands for? Any info on any other CLEVENSTINEs? I believe that Harrison had a sister Elizabeth and a brother Jackson.
