Griffis Bible

These pages were separated from the Bible, so the
date of the Bible is unknown. It was acquired from a
man in New York who saved the genealogical information
from Bibles that were being thrown away. It looks to be
late 18th-century based on the handwriting, dates,
and paper texture.

These pages are very small, about 4"x6".

Abner Griffis was a veteran of the Revolutionary War.
