Over forty years ago my aunt and uncle owned a grocery store in Roosterville, MO.When a customer couldn't pay his bill, he gave my uncle an oak desk.Inside of the desk was a family Bible.My aunt and uncle have both passed away and I now have the Bible.I would very much like to find its "family" and give it to them.
It is in a very worn condition and some of the writing is nearly unreadable.However, here is what I can make out:
Frances Ellen Raley born April 9, 18-- In--Ann Raley born --1855 Amy Marie (?) Charles Henry--- JohnWillis Raley Isam Raleydeparted this world first of Deasember, 1866
Isham Raley was born --9, 1820 Married my wife July 7, 1839 Family Record George Raley born Sept. 30, 1841 Nancy Raley, born Jan7, 1843 Mary Eli--Riley was born June 16, 1847
There's some other information written but I can't make it out.Please let me know if you are interested.I'd be glad to send it to you.
