Clark Family Bible



Bible presented to Mrs. Otis Clark, undated.  Holy Bible King James Version, Red Letter Edition. Grandma Clark, Ruby Poundstone Clark, listed the birth of everyone in the household and some of the deaths.  It appears that the bible was filled in shortly after she received it.  The entries must have been made at the some time since they are all in the same ink, with the exception of the name of the infant, David Ross, being added at a later time.

A great family treasure. I distant cousin has our family bible and I have failed to convince her to copy the handwritten pages for me...

I have some family that won't share also. What is the harm of sharing a picture or a photo copy? Hope one day you receive a copy of the bible.
