Family Bible in posession of Winston De Ville?

I recently found a note by an aunt (deceased) who had been researching our Robinson family lines. There was a known family Bible which no one could find in later years. The note I found was about Winston De Ville being in temporary posession of the Robinson Family Bible. His location was listed as Easton, LA.
Does anyone in the De Ville family know if Mr. De Ville is still alive or if he has family who could be contacted.
My family if very interested in the return of this heirloom. It deals with the family of Edwin Stearn(e/s) Robinson, who moved his family to MS (Natchez, then to Jasper Co.) from NY and CT. He was a teacher and minister.

Please contact me if you know how I can contact someone in his family.

Thanks,
Rebecca A. Smith
