    This bible was last in the possession of Anne Culbert Bourne Schulz, and was lost after her death. What remains are photocopies of two pages showing marriages, births, deaths, and memorandums. According to Anne, the bible was given by Moses to his daughter Hannah in 1839. The original entries in the bible are likely to be Hannah's. The significance of the margin note is not known.
