BIBLE FOUND !!!! ELLIS in Victor/Denton, MONTANA
Hi, there..in 2008 there was a post for a family BIBLE found in Victor, Montana. The marriage was for Wm H ELLIS....and I have a gr-gr-grandfather, WM H ELLIS. His grandson & family lived in Montana. Since I was the only one who responded, I was fortunate to receive this BIBLE. Unfortunately, I am NOT the one who should own this beautiful treasure...it is not my family. My William ELLIS's middle name was "Henry".
If anyone out there can claim William "Harlan" ELLIS & Sarah Jane Gardiner as their family, I would truly love to find you. I would exchange info to determine other family names in said bible, for verification. This bible is pretty fragile and has several obits loose in the pages, along with a page each of Marriages, Births & Deaths, all hand written, with dates, place of origin, etc.
I hope to find the correct owner to this priceless book.... It would have been breathtaking to hold in my hands the written messages of my ancestors..had it been mine to keep.
Thanks and "Happy Hunting" to all....Betty
