Mills Bible

The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
New York, American Bible Society, 1868.

This Bible is in poor shape, missing many pages including the
OT title page, and the front and back covers attached. There
are several mementoes, including locks of hair and obituaries
included. The text of the obituaries (which I did not transcribe,
but are scanned) yields the following information:

The Mills family lived in Ashtabula Ohio at the time Mary
Mills was born (1873).
The Fittinger Family lived in or near Detroit, Michigan.
Maggie May later married John Goodchild.
Another Mills daughter, either Sadie or Bertha, married
John Pike.

Two obituaries of Mary Fittinger (nee Mills)
Obituary of Mrs. John Pike
Obituary of James Gibson, of Vassar, Michigan, whose relation
to this Bible is not apparent.
