Bible record -assume Phila PA area

I inherited a Bible which has hand written genealogy info for assorted Morgenstern & Kraus surnames. I am not related to these families (as far as I know!), but an ancestor lived with a Kraus in the early 1900's. As best as I can decipher:

Walter Elmer Kraus marred (sic) Jan 11th 1932 to Elizabeth Waldron Daughter of Captain & Mrs Waldron

C Raymund (or Raymond) Kraus marred June 10th (the words "marred June 10th" are crossed out and "Birthday" is written next to it)

C Ray Kraus Marred Feb 13th 1935 to Doris Virginia Ward

Birthday (the following are listed underneath, some do not have a year):
Betty Kraus June 10th
Doris Kraus July 13th
Fredrieka Kraus Sept 11th 39
Walter Elmer Kraus July 26th 1907
C Ray Kraus Nov 11th - 1900
Pauline Kraus Oct 21
Mathilda Kraus Oct 20
Laura M Kraus Born Nov 12-1867 Died Oct 17-1955
Constantine Herman Kraus Born Nov 18-1868 Died Jan 30- 1964 age 95 Yr 2 mos

The next page:
Isabl (sic) Morgenster (assume Morgenstern) Died Dec 15th 1942
Mrs. Laura M Kraus died Oct 17th 1955
Mrs. Clara M Miller Died Dec 20, 1953
William Kraus Brother died Dec 9 (initials F C are above name)

Six Death Notices/Obituaries are pasted in the Bible. I'll list the pertinent genealogy info in each. If one of these is your relative, please email me for a full write-up of the notice.
Laura Kraus (nee Morgenstern) died Oct 17, 1955. Wife of Constantine H. Kraus, mother of C Raymond and Col. W>E> Kraus.

Clara Miller (nee Morgentern) died Dec 20, 1953. Wife of the late John Miller, Sr.

Constantin H. Kraus died Jan 1964 (maybe the 30th) at 95. Survivors: Sons C Raymond and retired Army Col Walter E, one grandchild and two sisters.

William F C Kraus died Dec 9, husband of Grace

Edward D Ward died March 4, age 70, husband of the late C Mabel Ward (nee Cook)

Mrs. Mina Kern died Tuesday (no date!), age 70. Wife of Rev George Kern, also a son Dr Richard A Kern

I hope this helps someone!
