An important 18th century Bible from the Holmes family dated 1754 containing extensive genealogical hand written records. Inserted in the Bible was a Certificate of Declaration of American citizenship for one Robert Holmes a native of Scotland in the year 1863. Less than two weeks later he was drafted by the Union Army to fight in the Civil War. What a way to enter the U.S. !
Difficult to a Bible this early with so much priceless genealogical information intact.
