This is the story of how Mary De Fullington came to own this Bible
My aunt (BY MARRIAGE) was adopted by a family in Texas.
She moved to Cailfornia and married my uncle (a GUESS) from Marion.
She had an uncle, that owned a Jewelry store.
When he died there was a group of old bibles in his safe and they let my aunt
Years later when I went to California, she ask me if old bibles were worth
she showed me about 5 bibles. I just glanced at them.
Weeks later she
called me and said she had looked at the bibles and she said "sit down,"
is in one of these bibles". That was some shock.
How did it get from
Crittenden County, Ky. to Evansville, In. to where my parents lived to Texas ?.....
