My name is Gerald Lawrence...My g grandfather was a Williams and a church planting preacher in south central Illinois (i.e., around the Vandalia, Mulberry Grove, Effingham, Louisville) area.....The Mckee family apparently provided him a Bible to start a new church that had been in the McKee family for a very long time....The Bible dates back to 1833.....
