First off let me tell you that I am in no way connected to either the family or the seller of this bible. I only try to let family members doing research, when I come across something on ebay that I can identify, in hopes that they will find their way back to their families. I also do genealogy and know how important these things can be....... ANTIQUE SIMPSON FAMILY BIBLE 1881 - MUST SEE End time: Nov-06-06 18:12:54 PST (4 days 19 hours)
