I have discovered a Treat Family Bible published 1830's. The person in possesion of this Bible would like to sell it. It is in very good shape for a book 170+ years old. The elderly gentleman who owns this bible is currently having it appraised. Some of the names entered into the family births and marriages section are as follows. John Treat wife Ruth, Hampden, Ohio. Walter Treat wife Stella, Fargo N.D., John was born in Eastport Maine 9/12/1830. This Bible contains beautiful hand written entry's and a poem written for John Treat. John was a young naval officer killed aboard the "Marmoora" gun boat while fighting confederate forces in Greenville, Miss. Oct. 20th 1863. I hope I can help get this treasure into the hands of one of John's decendants.
