Sebern Adison Jones Bible
This Bible was submitted by Marca
Lee McInnes Murray.
"I have had the Bible in my possession since my mother moved from her home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 5 1/2 years ago.
Sebern Adison Jones was born in Laurens District of South Carolina. Everyone else was born in Monroe County, Mississippi. Sebern and Arrilla were married 30 November 1854, Monroe County Mississippi.
Adah Leuna Jones who married Henry Anderson Garner is my grandmother.
I have found Sebern spelled many ways, Seaborn, Seburn, Cebern and other combinations.
Sebern's tomb stone says Seaborn. I think his father's says Seborn."

This note was placed in the Bible years ago by my mother, Jewel Velma Garner McInnes, daughter of Adah Leuna Jones, Mrs. Henry Anderson Garner.
This Bible was bought by S. A. Jones, the father of Mrs. H. A. Garner, in Monroe County, Mississippi several years prior to 1884. At this time it was brought to Texas by the family. In 1898 it was brought to Oklahoma and since that time has been in the possession of Mrs. Garner. A mate to this Bible, bought at the same time, belongs to Mrs. Garner's sister* at Stephenville, Texas.
That would be I think Cornelia Adelaide Jones, Mrs. Stephen Jasper "Jake" Webb. Probably at the death of my mother's sister, Lillian Lee Garner Mayes, the Bible came to my mother, Jewel McInnes, who was 96 last December 8. Since she lives in a retirement apartment in Fort Worth, I have the Bible.
