Simmons Bible

This Bible was purchased at auction on eBay.
I am not related to these people.

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments.
Auburn: Published by Alden Beardsley & Co., Rochester:
Wanzer, Beardsley & Co. 1851. Similar to Hills #1488,
but mine is dated 1851 not 1852.

The family record is loose and only has the marriages/
births page remaining. A very old negative was inside
this Bible; I have scanned and reversed the image.

This Bible is currently in the possession of Tracy St. Claire
