In front of the Bible are pasted some newspaper clippings.
One is an obituary for Mrs. J. B. Kent, with no dates.
Another is for Thelma Musser, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Musser.
Thelma died April 20, 1911.
There is also a lock of light brown hair, tied with a ribbon, in the Bible.
The Bible is in the Dawes County Museum, Chadron, Nebraska.
