I recently obtained an old Bible with a bunch of Delaware County folks in it. There are also many photos, but they are not labeled as to who is who. --Linda Smith, October 2006

These are the photos that were displayed on ebay by the seller of this Bible. Note the upper left photos on pages 1 and 2. The first is Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. The second is Gen. Sheridan, Union Army. What in the world these two original photos were doing in this Bible I do not know. But the person who bought this Bible recognized them, bought the Bible and took them out, and sent me the Bible with all the rest of the photos and information intact. He did this after I contacted him and asked him to transcribe the information for me. He sent it at no cost! What a great guy! The least I can do is share them with your website.

The bottom left corner of p 2 and the upper right corner of p 5 are the two photos I was unable to scan. Evidently they were able to photographed with a digital camera. Not all the births and marriages were photographed, but you can get a great idea of what this Bible looks like. If anyone out there is a direct descendant of these people, please have them contact me. --Linda Smith, Nashville, TN
