Hoffman Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, American Bible Society, 1875.

One back page has a statement from Mrs. Hoffman about
non-payment from one of her employers, in order to care
for a baby. This baby's name is also in the Bible, making
me wonder how this baby was related.

The Social Security Death Index has these Martin Crowners
Martin Crowner; Born 14 Aug 1923; Died 16 Nov 1999; Last Residence Fennville, Allegan, MI
Martin Crowner; Born 15 Nov 1883; Died 1 Mar 1974; Last Residence Fennville, Allegan, MI

There is a train receipt from Holland, MI in this Bible.
