Bourne Bible with Hitchner relations
Posted by: Mark Doss (ID *****1691) Date: March 23, 2004 at 09:11:55

I am not related, but, on e-bay for only 1 more day there is an 1883 BOURNE Bible. It has many death dates, which I'll list below, an obit, a portrait, and 2 pictures of a home. The seller, mojo70_0 has it listed as $101.00 which is astronomical but was gracious enough to have some digital pictures.
It is a gorgeous leather Bible with lots of gold trimmings!!! One the Bourne family would want back in it's possession.

Here is some of the information from the Bible:
Nathan Bourne Nov. 15, 1904
Martha Jane Bourne March 8, 1909
Cynthia Mary Hitchner Jan. 10, 1913
George Hitchner June 9, 1915
Ezra Bourne May 30, 1909
Sarah Louisa Moore Oct. 25, 1924
Anderson Bourne Sept. 10, 1927
Eliza Bourne (wife of Ezra) May 31, 1931
Anna Waldorf Bourne Mar. 13, 1939
Margaretta Bourne Baughman (wife of Anderson) May 9, 1940
Isaac Moore Jan. 13, 1942

Obit from newspaper (no date given):
God has sent his messanger to summon to his heavenly home our beloved sister, Mrs. Martha J. Bourne. We, acknowledging His love in giving his beloved sweet sleep and release from suffering, offer this tribute to her memory.
As a member of the Women's Missionary Society of Harmony Presbyterian Church, she was ever enthusiastic and faithful, regularly attending the meetings until prevented by failing health and advancing age. We will miss her interest and influence.
To her children and grandchildren we extend our deepest sympathy in their bereavement and commemnd them to Him who for so many years has been her comfort and stay.
"Blessed are the dead which die in the lord."
