Mary Smith Craig

Holy Bible in German; Rordhaufen, Drud und Berlag von T. G. Müller, 1856.

The Bible has no Family Register, but family information is recorded on the blank pages
inside the front & back covers. The German language entries were translated by Ellen
Biesdorf of Ithaca, NY. The German entries are hard to decipher, so only the translation is
transcribed for those entries.

The Bible is now in the possession of the C. G. Brisee Genealogy Library, Irwin, Iowa.
