The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments.
Stereotyped for the American Bible Society by D. & G. Bruce,
New York, 1824.
This Bible is in fair condition. The pages are all present and
look to be in good condition with minor foxing. The boards are
both present and in fair condition with wear. The spine -- and
the book itself -- is split straight down the middle throught the
Psalms, into two pieces. The spine is in surprisingly good
condition besides this, though, and the boards stayed attached
to the book.
There is not enough detail here for me to easily determine where
this family was from.

When we at last reach that blest coast
O'er life's rough Ocean driven
May we rejoice no wanderer lost
A family in Heaven
