Almost 20 years ago, I picked up an old German language Bible at a yard sale in Lancaster County. It was printed in 1859. Between the old and new testaments, there are quite a few pages of family information written in.
Some of the names I've been able to make out are:
M(ary?) Christiana Marley, born May 8, 1899
George Craig Marley, born September 8, 1896
There are plenty of other names and dates, but the handwriting is a little hard to make out, plus I can't read German.
I'm just trying to find anyone whose family could be connected to this Bible (some of the info in it dates back to 1832). The guy I bought it from found it in the basement of a house he was cleaning out (I think he said it was one of the only things left in the house).
If this could help anyone (or, if God forbid, I actually found one of the descendents....something I always thought of trying to do ever since I bought this in 1991, that would be really cool).
