My Parent’s Bibles
The presentation page of one of my dad’s bibles, presented to him on Christmas Day, 1968 by my mother.
The presentation page of one of mother’s bibles; presented to her by her Sunday School Class at New Chapel Baptist Church. The first person signing is her mother, my grandmother Maggie Waller. Also signing is mom’s sister, Mrs. H L Morehouse (Iris Waller). These signatures indicate the date would have to be about 1950. Some of the other women were childhood friends of my mother, or members of families that have been church members since the founding of the church. Notice that some of the women use their husband’s name, as in “Mrs Robert Litchford” while others use their own name, as in “Mrs Maggie Waller”.
