Surnames found in this record:
The Fisher bible is now in the possession of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Fisher, but please use Shelley's email above as a
contact. Shelley submitted, electronically, the scanned pages of the bible. The overall condition of the bible is very
good even though it went through a fire when it was in the possession of Edward Ives Fisher; it was one of the first
items to be saved.
