NOTE: This bible was in the possession of Gladys Jenkins Holdridge, daughter of Jacob and Mollie Ida (Jordan) Jenkins. The bible was falling apart, the family record pages were removed and kept in a large white bible belonging to Gladys Holdridge. After her death the bible came into the possession of her son Gerald Holdridge. In May 2000, Gerald gave the original loose pages of the bible to me, Cindy Holdridge Smith. The family record pages are transcribed here exactly as they appear in the bible.
