Family Bible Records
Lee County IL
Contributed by Charles Caughlan

Thanks to Don and Beverly Pyn, 2205 S Hawthorne Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57105 who were looking at old Bibles in an Iowa town and found this 1829 Bible.

I called them at 605-344-6295 in Feb 2003 and they were still living.

They have since given this Bible to Myer family descendants, but can't remember who it was.

The Bible says, George W Myer's Bible Jan 3 1860 Dixon, Lee County Illinois.
