For your consideration I am proud to offer an 18th century American Family Bible from the Holmes clan. This bible is dated 1754 and contains extensive genealogical hand- inscribed 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 enlisted by the Union Army to fight in the Civil War. Within 16 days after arriving to America who was dodging bullets.
It is certainly uncommon to find a Bible this early with so much priceless genealogical information intact. Natural foxing, spotting and wear throughout consistent with Bible of this age. 8’ inches in length and 3’ inches deep.
