Gearhart Bible

These pages were separated from the Bible, so an exact
publication date of the Bible is not certain. The pages
are in great condition, and consistent with those found
in mid-19th century Bibles. They were found in an antique
store in St. Charles, Illinois.

The 1880 census places this couple in Peters township,
Franklin County, Pennsylvania. It does not appear that
they had any children.

They lived adjacent to George Gearhart (age 35), and David Gearhart (age 39) households who might be
Christopher's brothers.
