Bible of James Monroe Morrow (1815-1855) and Hannah Ann (Foster) Morrow (1818-1850) of Warren County, Ohio
Bible of James Monroe Morrow (1815-1855) and Hannah Ann (Foster) Morrow (1819-1850) of Warren County, Ohio.
One of their sons, Jeremiah Thomas Morrow (1844-1864), "Jerrie", apparently died at Andersonville Prison but if they ever got confirmation of that, they didn't update the death entry.
The thickness of this little Bible made it very difficult to photograph the pages - some information near the spine is blurred out in the images, but is readable in the Bible itself.
The Bible, which measures 6" by 3-1/2" by 1-1/4", has pages entitled Marriages, Births (two pages) and Deaths and also a handwritten note attesting to the fact that the Bible was passed on by Hannah on her death bed to her son Henry F. Morrow (1840-1867) on May 10, 1850.
Also included are two pages of handwriting, rather faint, one that appears to have been inscribed by a Cousin and the other, perhaps a continuation of the previous page, inscribed by Rebecca A. Griffiths at Griffith's Retreat in March 1839.
Births, two pages
Deaths, taken with phone to try to get deeper into the crease
