Shaver Bible

The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Cooperstown, N.Y., H.& E. Phinney, 1833. Old Testament
title page missing; information is from the New Testament
title page. Equal to Hills #817.

Time has not been kind to this Bible. The covers are both
entirely missing, and the spine is in tatters. The first pages are
missing, the first page that is present is the first page of Genesis.

Next, it is not hard to see why this Bible was not kept in
the family. It looks like there wasn't much family left!

I am going to guess New York for this Bible. 1) The Bible
itself was made in New York, and in 1833 they didn't travel
too far. 2) In searching for people with the last name
"Woughter", they all were in New York. 3) in Owego,
Tioga County, there is a Baptist church that had both
Shaver and Woughter parishioners.
