Small Bibles were often lost, but this one is quite the exception. There are SIX entries written at the front, all from the 19th century. The Bible is very small, but it is technically not a miniature book as it measures 3" across and 4-1/2" tall. As you can see, the cover is worn, but the wear pattern is attractive, as this was a much used book and brings with its history every name and every blemish. There used to a flap to close it, but the mechanism has broken off. And yet somehow the pages are tightly bound and in very nice condition. The first entry is in pencil and very faint now, but the rest are quite readable. The second one is "Paskey Lena Wier, Born July 15, 1826". The name appears again on the next page stamped in gold. The third name is "Nancy Ellen Conrad Born August 16th 1854 and died August 12th 1861." Beneath hers is "Martin Conrad Died October 16th 1854." Next comes Paskey L. Andrews Died March 31st, 1859." I think Paskey is a surname, but even that didn't help me determine where this family came from. I bought this Bible near Akron, Ohio, but that may,or may not be, where its from.
