The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, New York, American Bible Society,
The Bible itself is in fair condition. The spine is damaged
and the back cover completely missing, but the pages are
all there and in OK shape, firm, not brittle or acidic, but
with some water damage and foxing. The front cover is
present but detached.
An entry in the LDS database places the birth of Beulah
(date correct, parents Philip and Margaret) in Bucks County,
Pennsylvania. This appears to be confirmed by the 1850
census for that area. There is no indication within the Bible
itself of this family's place.
