Albert Smith Abel family Bible
I recently purchased a family Bible of the Albert Smith Abel family (residence location of family unknown) at an auction in Hogansville, GA. The Bible was first printed in 1895, second printing 1902, by J.R. Jones (Again, no location). It is a "Fine Art Edition, The Self-Pronouncing S.S. Teachers' Combination Bible. " It is in a hand-painted, wooden case.
Here is the family information written inside:

Husband, Albert Smith Abel, Born June 11th 1875

(next is is same handwriting as Anna Rose Abel above)
Mrs. Katie Ansert, died March 1 1898

Would like to get this Bible back to the family with whom it belongs. I am not related in any way. Many items from this auction are purchased in Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York and other northern states. Some items are from local estate sales (Georgia, Alabama). I do not know where this Bible was obtained.
If you are a member or descendant of this Abel family, please contactJudy Kilgore ([email protected]).
