Every so often I sit and look through this wonderful little Bible that I gifted myself with a few
years ago just before Christmas. The young girl that owned it so loved poetry and saving
things that were dear to her heart.
I hope you are able to read some of the poems.
I have also listed some history that was also listed about her family.
I know it's a lot of information, but thought some might like to read it.
Have a wonderful day!!
