The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, Philadelphia, M. Carey & Son,
This Bible is in good condition, with the original
binding still intact. There is some water damage to
the front pages and a few tattered pages throughout.
This is a Catholic Bible, but it appears from the
entries that this family was not Catholic. I don't
know if that is uncommon or not. From other sources,
it appears the George Frisbee was a Methodist
