Shoup Bible


This Bible was purchased on eBay, provenance unknown.

The Bible is The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New
Testaments, New York, American Bible Society, 1846.



Currently in possession of Tracy St. Claire, 114 Hilltop Lane,
Sleepy Hollow, IL 60118, aaf@ais.net

The seller sold this as the "Sharp" Bible, but it is a "Shoup"
Bible upon inspection. There are some VERY recent
entries in this Bible, making me wonder whether it was
accidentally lost or stolen.

Some entries were overwritten in pencil, and my transcription
is of the pencil.

Obituary of Emory Jackson (died 1966) enclosed, obituary
of "Buster" (dog at Jackson home) and a Reward of Merit
(names illegible).
