Mabb Bible

This Bible was submitted by Ella Kemp (

"This Bible is in my possession. I got it from the "Black Shutters" antique store in Victory Mills, Saratoga Co., NY some years ago. Maybe late 70's. Unfortunately, the front pages where publisher and date would be found are missing. The book is old and not in great shape. Pages are very brown and ink is brown. I believe the entries to have been made at the time of the events, although by different people. The quality of the script seems to differ quite a bit.

Please feel free to use this information."
