Body of Message:

The Hopkins County, Kentucky Genealogical Society wants to share information on this old 1816 Bible. The owner does not know how it connects into her line at this date, however there may be a connecton in Christian Co. Ky. (ie: 1850 census). The oldest dates are Alexnader McCown born 1755 and his wife Susan Unseld born 1766. Here is the listings as best as I can transcribe them.

OF OUR

LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHIRST,

OUT OF THE ORIGINAL GREEK:

All of the information on the four sheets. The Bible is about three inches thick. I know there are mistakes in the transcribing, sorry. We have copies of the sheets but they are very hard to read. Good Luck in your research
