I believe the Bible belonged to William Augustus Coffield and his wife since this is who is listed as getting married.

At the center of the Bible

Wm. A. Coffield of Chowan County N.C. and Lizzie McCoy of Edenton were joined in Holy Matrimony by Rev. B. W. Daugherty, Va. Cou.

Written by E.M. Jordan, Oct. 22nd, 1883 and witnessed by B.L. Evans and ? Norfleet.

There are the regular notes of births, marriages and deaths. Other notes in the Bible were written on seperate sheets of paper. Many were written by my grandmother, Bertha Edwards Coffield Gray White when I was about 9 or 10.

In the back are some photos of both the Coffields, McCoys, and some friends of the family.
