This Book the Family Bible of
William Montgomery & Rachel Harvey my
grand parents on the mothers side was given to
me by my father after my mothers death
It is doubtful whether the Book was the only
family Bible but the entries in regard to the
Montgomery at the end of Malachi are in the hand
writing of my grand father William Montgomery
& other entries appear in the same hand
