Editor’s Note (not Lisa Wilson): These pages are probably only a portion of the Bible; however, it supplies very valuable information. Perhaps the remaining parts of the Bible can be located and more information clarified.

There appears to be at least three different scripts in the writing, although two of these could be the same script which has changed with the increasing age of the individual who entered the information. The author thinks that the Bible most likely belonged to Richard and Milly Yeilding and then was passed on to Francis Yeilding and was then probably given to one of the descendants of Francis and Betsy Earles Yeilding.
