Bible Record

Submitted by Dixie Wood

Dixie wrote:
This is an exact copy from the Bible of Tyra P. and Mary Alvis. Mary gave it to her daughter Martha Jane (Alvis) Ellis. It was then given to Martha's daughter Orra Erma (Ellis) Wilson. In December, 1977, Orra gave the Bible to her granddaughter, Dixie.

As a supplement, when the Bible pages were full, great-grandmother Martha had made notations of family records in a notebook which I also have.
