I have in my possession a Bible given to me by my mother. The Bible was in in her grandmother's things.
I will transcribe the names and dates as I see them knowing that some of the handwriting is difficult to read.
In pencil on the inside cover someone wrote as follows:
Mrs R.D. Fuqua
Oct 10, 1895
Then there was a hand written letter slipped in just after the cover on small sized piece of watermarked stationary that reads as follows:
Mayrim (Not sure what this says)
Bro Block (could be Black/Bloch) informed me that Bro Fuqua's had lost another child and desired that I should preach the funeral. I can come and preach it the second sabbath in November. (Divine Volition permitting) which will be the 8th of said month.
Yours in love
Mayri**?, *arfield Co. W.*.
Excuse brevity as it is almost bed time
In the middle of the Bible there are some family records hand written in ink ( I will write as it reads - excuse the tenses - I am not correcting anything)
