Whitney Bible

The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, American Bible Society, 1855.

This Bible is in fair condition. The inside pages are all present,
with few tears and little foxing. The back cover is off, the spine
has about an inch of loss at the bottom, the front cover's
leather is nearly off, and the front cover is holding on by a
couple of ropes. I've seen far worse, and this would repair

I have not found much about this family, but the LDS site
puts the marriage in Cumberland County, Maine.
