Thank you for responding. Does that mean Hardy and John were brothers? This bible has Hardy Hatley born Nov. 1849.Died 1900 April. There is not a birth date for John, only that he lived to be 80 years old. The front of the Bible says Alvins 2nd or 3rd Bible.Presented to Buford Hatley (Alvins son) by Father A.H Hatley. Buford was born Feb. 8, 1881.
