Info from J.L. Mobley Bible
Posted by: Joy Mobley Herring Date: November 02, 2000 at 17:05:47
  of 2265

This leather-bound Bible was published in 1857. It is (as far as I know) presently in the possession of my eldest uncle, Reuben Harper Mobley, Jr..

I copied the information contained herein by hand (! :-)) on 18 June 1977, and take full responsibility for any errors in copying I may have made. (Most of the handwriting was pretty clear, as well as I remember.) I have not seen the Bible since that time, but I'm almost *sure* that I copied the entries *exactly* as they appeared, assuming nothing that wasn't spelled out. Any parenthetical comments made by me shall appear in [brackets].

I wish I could remember how many different hands appear --- it will be obvious that some of the entries were made considerably after the dates given. If anyone sees an incomplete entry, and has reason to believe that he/she can provide completion, I would love to hear from you!
