Attached is transcription of my Great-Grandfather's Bible. I have attested all of the dates, etc., and know them to be accurate.
This information is being provided to you for FREE DISTRIBUTION and MAY NOT BE RE-SOLD or otherwise charged for.
If there is any question about this, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Whereabouts of the original Bible is not known. It was possibly consumed in a 1988 fire which totally destroyed the home where A.M.'s elder child, Miss Blanche Gieger had lived prior to her demise in 1965.
This transcript is taken from xerographic copies made in the 1970's by my father, James Oral Gieger, Sr., who inherited the house following Aunt Blanche's death. Whose handwriting has not been determined, but it is all that of one person. Certain family members tend to think it to be that of Aunt Blanche, as some correspondence which is still on hand seems to be comparable. I am a direct descendant of Miss Blanche Gieger's brother, Andrew Jackson Gieger, who died in 1923 from Typhoid Fever.
The exact date of publication is not known, but is thought to be early 1900's. Entries inside [brackets] were inserted by the submitter for clarification.. A new Bible was purchased about 1926 but no entries were transcribed in it.
