This week Sepia Saturday's topic is Bibles. I am fortunate to have a Bible that belonged to my second great grandmother, Esther Barbara (Wolf) Gruissy. It was not treated kindly over the years and is in very poor condition.
This Bible was printed in 1856 by the American Bible Company in New York.
Three Generations of Signatures
This Bible does not have a listing of family births and deaths but it has special signatures:
Esther (Wolf) Gruissy's signature,
The signature of her daughter, N. Regina (Gruissy) Mark,
The signature of her daughter, my paternal grandmother, Ivy Regina (Mark) Brown.
Despite the poor condition this Bible is precious to me because of those signatures.
Be sure to visit Sepia Saturday & see more Bibles!
