Bible Record of Lemon Family

James Hey LEMON and Adelaide Montezuma KATER family bible
5 Oct 1883
These pages were transcribed exactly how I found them to the best
of my ability. I have made an attempt to correct nothing except capitalize
surnames. Brackets show illegible or obvious corrections. These records
were taken from color photo-copies I personally made of the original
bible pages as the originals are too fragile to handle.
I am a direct descendent of James Hey LEMON and Adelaide Montezuma
KATER being their great-great-granddaughter.
The original bible is in the possession of Mary Elizabeth MCCOY.
Thanks once again to all that have posted info and helped me in my
searches. Good luck to all!

I have a Bible that is written in a script that I can not altogether
read. I will give the highlights of the information, only, because
I'm afraid that I will copy it incorrectly. The Bible was left in
a house in Gravity, Iowa.
