I'm looking for a bible belonging to Joseph Valente, Joseph passed away in 1998 and his Mom sent the bible to Joe's brother Danny in North Carolinea.

I have a couple of pages which begin with the words as follows:

"In a book, The Life Of Jesus Christ, written by the Revenend John Fleetwood D.D. and printed by J. Cooke at Shakespear-Head, Pater-Noster Row (NDCCLX11)-1722. Elizabeth Mary Jackson recorded the family history as follows."

It then goes on to discribe the entries starting with Thomas Jackson and Elizabeth Tomlinson were married at Saint Mary-le-bone, London England on Thursday the 20th June 1822. I only have what this person wrote down as they understood it on these two pages.

It would be very exciting to have this book still existing. I won't put my hopes up. Contact Letha Bird at

I'm trying to find the Bible for Miner Samuel Davis b. 1850 PA and Hannah Anderson. My gr. grandmother wrote a note that she was going to get it from one of her siblings in Spokane, WA. But I don't think she ever got it. Most of her siblings lived in Luzerne co. PA or Kootenai Idaho or Spokane, WA. areas.

I can think of 2 places Spokane, Wa or Tustin, Orange, California, where my gramma died if the estate sales guy found it after her death he might have sold it I suppose.

The other family bible would be For Enoch Davis and Lydia Camp 1st wife and 2nd wife Hannah Ellsworth they are the parents of Miner Samuel Davis. They lived in Susquehanna county, Springville township and Nicholson also Wilkesbarre and Kingston PA (at one time all of that was considered Luzerne county PA. These Davis's decend from John Davis the Welshman of Derby, CT.

Everyone in the Colby family I have talked to has said that they had all thought their genealogy was carefully written back to the middle ages in a beautiful old family bible, which disappeared on the death of its owner. I would love to get at least a copy of this genealogy. I would be willing to pay for either the copy or the actual bible. The story I have heard is as follows:

Walter Frank Colby was born 14 Aug 1898 near Johnson City, in Owego, New York. He had 7 children. He was said to have had a vault of family heirlooms, include an old, pre-print Bible. It was a great big, heavy book with a snap, done is beautiful handwritten script, and seen by many of his grandchildren. Walter Frank's second wife, Julia C. Colby nee Elliot, was said to have insisted on selling many of the heirlooms. She apparently wanted to donate the Bible to a museum. Walter Frank and Julia lived in Diamond Springs, California, at Walter Frank's death. She later moved to Lawrence, Kansas, where she was said to have still had the Bible in her possession, although it had not been seen since Walter Frank's death. His body was brought back to Kansas for burial. She died 18 Mar 2002 per the Social Security Death Index. Rex J. Hotchkiss, Jr., 1014 W 7th St., Antioch, CA 94509

My name is Louise Reid. I am searching for a Bible that may have been owned by my great great grandparents, Ben Massey of SC and Colline Chapman Massey of Germany I only learned of them a year or so ago when I obtained the death certificate of my great grandmother, Mary Massey Hooper Cheek. She passed away in 1927 at the age of 57 in Anderson Co., SC. I do not know if her mother and father were alive at the time of her death. I have searched for information on both of them for a long time and have hit a very hard brick wall. I don't know if my great grandmother had any brothers or sisters or if she was an only child.

If anyone has any information on such a Bible or this family, please contact me, I would be most grateful.

The family names inside would have been: PATTERSON, CARNES, MAKELEY, BAKER, BARRETT, CREIGHTON, ISAMAN, NEU, POWERS and perhaps many others I don't even know about yet.

Am searching for a bible that was always referred to as my "Grandmother's" bible. Do not really know if it was hers, RUST, or KANIUT.

It was in my Aunt Flora Kenney possession until her death in mid 1960's ???, in Hopkins, Minnesota. Her things were sold and taken by children and grandchildren at that time. I have talked to two cousins but neither of them know what happened to it. I do believe an antique dealer did purchase some things, but don't know if the bible may have been one of them.

I have had luck with the KANIUT family name in tracing them back to Prussia, but not much luck with grandmas family ...RUST... who I believe were from KASSEL, in Germany. I don't even know her fathers name for sure. If this was from her family, this could be a godsend with the possible information in it. It may be a Lutheran bible but I am not sure. If it is found, I feel we can identify it by the dates. I would love to have the bible, but getting any information it has would be wonderful. Please reply to Pete Kaniut, 303 Bonita, Safford, Az 85546

I don't know if the bible is still in La. or if it was lost. It's very large and had mementos in separate envelopes within it's pages, it should have the names: SNOW, PHILIPS, HARVEY, HARPER.

I don't know if the bible was originally Annie's or if she inherited it. Her parents would have been, Martin SNOW of Pike Co. IL and Mary Elizabeth PHILIPS of Pike Co. IL. I would be willing to pay for this bible should a non family member have it, or copied pages from the family sheets.

Henry's mother, Sarah Brannon Collins, was married to a man by the name of Gray after Henry's father died. There were several children born to that union. Perhaps some members of the Gray family may know what happened to the bible. Any and all information is greatly appreciated.

Anyone with any information at all concerning this Bible and/or the COLLINS family from Warren and Clinton Counties, Ohio; please contact me.

I am seeking information on The Hively Family Bible, that was brought to Hardin County, Ohio in the early 1800's.

I am searching for a bible which was inadvertently given away last year at the time a cousin's house was cleaned out. The bible would have belonged to Bessie Valentine Crouse/Krouse. It would have contained the Valentine family names.

It belonged to: Addie Mae Young Varner Elliott, and my uncle lived in Vidor TX, when he died. If anyone knows the whereabouts of this Bible, please let me know.

I am trying to find my grandfathers family bible. Names included in it are, Claude and May Coones, David and Harriet Coones. There should be more Coones, Henderson, Williams and their children. Just getting the information from it would be helpful.

Denise Perkins Ready
Looking for the William & Lucy (Seaver/Sever) PERKINS Bible from Crownpoint,Essex Co.,NY. The Bible was mentioned by Lucy (Seaver/Sever)Perkins during questioning from the War Dept. on the date of her marriage to William Perkins (Soldier in the War of 1812). She said she knew she was married in May of 1814 at Crownpoint, NY but, that the Bible that contained the actual date was in the position of her daughter Martha Perkins, who she has had no contact with since she moved to the state of Michigan.

Carol McAlpine
Looking for a Bible that my cousin left in a house in PA. I would guess, maybe, somewhere in the Columbia County area. I can't be more specific than that, apparently, she moves quite often. The Surnames would be: KESTER and/or MILLARD. I am extremely interested in finding this Bible, as it contains quite a bit of our family history, and would be a great asset to my genealogy research pursuit.

Ben Hornby
We have lost The Hornby Family Bible, and wish to retrieve it, or at least copy the family information it contains. It was last known to be in the possession of my mother Phylis May Hornby in about 1951. The location could have been Walton-on-Thames England. Among the many tales and theories is one that indicates it may have been sold. I would love to find this book. It should contain names of Hornby,Cartwright, Warner, Mimmack, Epton, Cottingham, Shuttleworth, and Wolstenholm, many located in Lincolnshire, England.

James M. Bagby
If Joyce Vetter or the person she gave the James Bagby Bible to, would be willing to share the family data with me, I will try to pass it on to other Bagby researchers. I don't need a secret name or private number. Just write to James M. Bagby, Indep. MO. Thank you.

I am looking for our family bible. It is white and apparently in a storage unit somewhere in California. A relative went out there and put stuff in a unit and it is to be believe is not paying on it. The family names include, Nagel, Smolovitz and Stark. They are all from Cleveland Ohio.

Cora Simpkins
I am looking for the SIMPKINS family Bible. My Great-Grandparents...David P. and Maggie Simpkins... had a family Bible I was told by a cousin. I just found out about my long lost cousin a year ago. And she is in her 70's. She told me that when she was a little girl she remembers a bible on a prayer stand. So the bible was last seen in the 1930's. If there is anyone out there that has seen a SIMPKINS family Bible please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated. They are or were from Bridgeton ... Cumberland County...New Jersey.

Clara Schaeffer Miller
I have been searching for lost family bible since 1959 .... After parents divorce. The Bible is a very thick brown, about 6 inches thick, 10" wide 14" high. There was an oval picture 3" wide by 4" high on the Front cover of John Rife Schaeffer, which I have that picture. In the back of the Bible are the parents of John. I was a child the last time I saw it. The family names are: Schaeffer, Reiff, Deisher, Hoch, Balliet, Dresbach, Kerstetter. I'm willing to pay for the return of this Bible. Last known area was Lycoming Co., PA.

Karen Fancher
Looking for any Peyton Bible that may have come from either Tennesse or Kentucky-particularly with the name Micajah in it. Micajah married Christiana Shouse in Franklin Co.,Ky in 1790's. Possible Parents-Phillip, Henry, John, George, Valentine.

My grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Hennessy Brennan, died in Chicago, Illinois, December 1937. Her only child did not receive the Bible along with the momentos sent to him in Montana after her death. It may be in the possession of descendents of her niece, Ellen Powers Sutter, who was with Mary E. Brennan at her death and signed her death certificate. Bible may contain information on HENNESSY/CRONIN/POWERS/PUMA/DUNNE/RYAN/BRENNAN and others from Chicago and Tipperary. I would be willing to buy the Bible if it can be found. Carole M. Demers
