WEED FAMILY BIBLE
Coded by Gwen Oliver
Surnames in this record:
I recently found in a flea market in Jackson, MS an old Bible. I did not purchase it, but I was allowed to copy information from it to put on the Internet in hopes of locating interested family members. Here is part of the records in it.

[There is other information, 2 pictures (no names) and an envelope of obituaries in the Bible. If you are interested please E-mail me at the address above and I will give you the name and phone number of the person who has the Bible. He had a price of $125 on it. The Bible was well preserved.
One interesting note: Part of one page of records had been very neatly cut out!! I hope I can help put this beatiful Bible back with the family it once belonged to Ann Crumpton.
Tracy's Note: This excerpt was submitted several years ago. The possibility of it still being found are significantly lower.]
