I am not related, just sharing.

THIS IS A 1848 ANTIQUE FAMILY BIBLE WHICH BELONGED TO THE DOWNER-SLAUGHTER FAMILY CHRISTIAN CO. KY.

VERY LARGE AND VERY HEAVY. GILT GOLD DESIGNS ON FRONT AND BACK.


IF YOU GOOGLE IN THE DOWNER-SLAUGHTER FAMILY THE BIRTHS, MARRIAGES AND DEATHS ALL ARE CORRECT
WITH THE RECORDS IN THIS BIBLE.


BENJAMIN DOWNER BORN APR. 30 1783. ELIZABETH SLAUGHTER WIFE OF BENJAMIN DOWNER SR. BORN 17TH, 1782.


MARRIAGES: BENAJAMIN DOWNER, SR. AND ELIZABETH SLAUGHTER WERE MARRIED NOV. 21 1804.


DEATHS: BENJAMIN DOWNER SR. DEPARTED LIFE MAR.27, 1826 AT 35 MINUTES PAST 10 O'CLOCK P.M. AGED 43 YRS.
10 MONTHS AND 27 DAYS.


ELIZABETH SLAUGHTER WIFE OF BENJ.DOWNER,SR. DIED DEC. 19TH 1862 ( HARD TO MAKE OUT THE LAST NUMBER).


THIS LARGE HARDCOVER BIBLE IS DATED 1848. BROWNS' CONCORDANCE, THE APOCRYPHA, ORIGINAL TONGUES,
AND WITH THE FORMER TRANSLATIONS.
WITH REFERENCES AND VARIOUS READINGS.


HAS WONDERFUL LITHO PRINTS WITH TISSUE PAPER OVER EACH ONE.


ALL PAGES ARE INTACT. DOES HAVE WEAR AND SCUFFING WHICH YOU CAN SEE IN MY PICTURES.
DOES HAVE SPOTTING ON PAGES WHICH IS WHAT I CALL STORAGE STAINS.


WOULD BE A TREASURE FOR A RELATIVE OF THE DOWNER-SLAUGHTER FAMILY.


MEASURES 11 -1/2" TALL X 9" WIDE. 3 3/4" THICK.
