Bible Records of the WW Mahaffey Family

Donated by Willie Stevens

The family bible had been destroyed some years before and Aunt LuCresia gave me what she had typed up. The typed page is in bad shape I understand. The bible had belonged to Elva Pauline Maloney who was the daughter of Melissa Augusta Mahaffey-Kingery who died in a hospital in Carbondale.

This must have been typed before before April 1956 when John D. died, Cape Girardeau, MO. and
Nora E. died March 26th 1960, Dudley, Stoddard County, MO.
LuCresia died December 1st 1980, Delta, Cape Girardeau County, MO.

The above bible record was submitted to your site by a Willie Stevens.  Would you be able to put me in touch with this person?

Melissa Augusta Mahaffey, daughter of W W Mahaffey, was my great-grandmother and I just typed her name into Google randomly and found this page.  My grandma always spoke of Aunt Cresh whom I suppose is the LuCresia mentioned on this list.

It would be wonderful to contact this long-lost relative. 

Appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks, Molly Davis
