I made a trip to FL at Christmas time to see my mother. She had a cedar chest that she recently inherited from her sister. I wanted to be sure to get some pics of things that were inside of it.
The first treasure I found was a Bible dated pre-Civil War. It is in very good shape, considering it's age. The print is very legible and readable.
This page has some one's own handwriting and is very clear.
This just shows that the print throughout the book is still readable.
This is another Bible that belonged to my Dad's mother. I could find no date anywhere in this Bible. It has family history it in and may have been given to her on her marriage.
