Stroud Family Bible
The F. E. Stroud Bible was in possession of his daughter Mildred (Stroud) Blair of Sun City, AZ (now deceased). Photocopy in possession of Fredric Z. Saunders. The family was from Wilson County, Tennessee, moved to Texas County, Missouri, and then to various places in Colorado and Wyoming.
Printing date of Bible unknown. The Bible was water damaged, the family pages were torn out and saved, and the rest of the Bible was thrown away in the (1920s?). It contained two preprinted pages for Births, one for Marriages, and one for Deaths.
Spellings and punctuation are as on the pages. There are several different handwritings. As some items are not chronological they were probably copied from another family Bible/record, or personal knowledge. The Bible may have originally been owned by F.E.Stroud's parents O. B. Stroud and M. E. Moody, and acquired about the time of their marriage in 1858.
