Joseph Clark McKee & Anne Isabelle McKee 1868(?) Bible

I just saw this on Ebay and feel that these things should be reunited with their families. I benefit in no way.

Here's the link;

Should the link expire the seller's Ebay moniker is "ellis4465" perhaps you could pursue it that way.

Here are the contents of the seller's description;
"I don't know much about this bible. Its old and in rough shape. The print on the inside of the covers tell me it can't be hundreds of years old unless it has been repaired. The only hand writing on the inside says: Family Bible of Joseph Clark McKee and Anne IsabelleMcKee 1868, but the "1868" is in darker ink so it could be written at a later time. I can't find a publishing date. Although Googling leads me to belive it is 19th century.

The Title Page reads:

The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments, with the Apocrypha . . .Together with A new and Improved Dictionary of the Bible By Rev. Alfred Nevin, D.D., Illustrated with more than two hundred maps, plans and engravings, on wood and steel. Springfield: W.J. Holland & Co."
