Yesterday, 5 May 07, I picked up these 2 family Bibles in a used bookstore in Trappe, MD. Hope the info will help someone doing research on these families. I would be willing to sell them to a family member for the price I paid for them [$20 & $95] plus shipping. They are very heavy books & in rather good condition. One is obviously larger & more ornate. I would also be willing to photocopy the info & send it. I've tried to copy them as written, even tho there are obvious discrepancies.
