Family Bible
Posted by: genny joiner (ID *****2073) Date: July 23, 2003 at 19:54:52
  of 667

Over forty years ago my aunt and uncle owned a grocery store in Roosterville, MO. When a customer couldn't pay his bill, he gave my uncle an oak desk. Inside of the desk was a family Bible. My aunt and uncle have both passed away and I now have the Bible. I would very much like to find its "family" and give it to them.

It is in a very worn condition and some of the writing is nearly unreadable. However, here is what I can make out:

Frances Ellen Raley born April 9, 18--
In--Ann Raley born --1855
Amy Marie (?)
Charles Henry---
John Willis Raley
Isam Raley departed this world first of Deasember, 1866

Isham Raley was born --9, 1820
Married my wife July 7, 1839
Family Record
George Raley born Sept. 30, 1841
Nancy Raley, born Jan7, 1843
Mary Eli--Riley was born June 16, 1847

There's some other information written but I can't make it out. Please let me know if you are interested. I'd be glad to send it to you.
