      Bible Record of Lemon Family

      submitted by:

       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!

      Larsen Family

      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.

      In the front cover is says, Mr and Mrs Louis Larsen, Looking Glass, Nebr.
