CARROLL FAMILY BIBLE FOR SALE ON EBAY-was able to transcribe some of it...

Am not related but am looking at bibles on Ebay and found this, thought it could help someone or maybe a descendant of this line would want to know that they can get their bible back. There's 6 days left to bid and it's only ten dollars.

See bottom of this post for marriages, other surnames are Loag, Enyard?/Engard? (one of the two), Thatcher, Britton, and Rea or Ren (not sure which.) It appears that the majority of the entries are of PA/NJ/NY descendants?

The link to this page is:

-or
just go to ebay and do a search with these words:
