Reed Bible

This Bible was submitted by:

William L. Showers, Murrieta, California

"I just inherited a large old Bible with a note that it was purchased in 1840.

I was disappointed that no Showers names were entered in the bible even though the bible was handed down through the Showers families. 3) According to the 1880 census both John Showers and Ebe Reed were born in Indiana, migrated to Southern Illinios and ending up in South Western Iowa, where they are both burried in a cemetery in Coin Iowa.

Notes:1) some of the entries spelled "died" as "dide".
2)Ebe Reed married my ggrandfather John A. Showers.

Hope this info will be of some use to your listings and to other users."
