I saw your message after I posted a follow-up to your first message. We would love to hear the whole story about Dudley-all we know is that he died as the result of a fall off a ladder. We have Bertie's name as Bertie Mae Groce Langdale Beard Black and she did outlive her three husbands. My mother-in-law is Bertie's youngest daughter. She showed me the Bible because she knew I was interested in my husband's genealogy. It is a Herton Blue Ribbon Bible and Bertie must have purchased it after her third marriage because she lists her name as Mrs. Bertie G. Black, 121 Bamberg St., Bamberg, SC. Some of the entries were obviously not made by Bertie because it has her death information, but it is not my mother-in-law's handwriting. I think another family member had loaned her the Bible.
