The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
Published by E. H. Butler & Co, 1867.
This Bible is in very good condition, so much so that I think
it may have

The rear cover is off.

Lawrence in the 1880 Federal Census of Cussawago, Crawford County,
Pennsylvania. She is the mother-in-law, age 66, and her unmarried daughters
Lenora (37) and Zoradie (32). Daughter Alpha (25) has a daughter of her own,
age 2. It would appear from the older daughters' entries that Maria and Charles
were both from Pennsylvania, but Alpha's record says that both father and
mother were born on New York. Oh well. Such is genealogy. Draw your
There is a embroidered bookmark with "Maria Louisa Miller" on it in this Bible.
