I have no idea when it was last in my mothers possession, I do know that my eldest sister had it for a time.
My nephew say's his mother gave it to him.
It was not left to anyone in particular and by tradition it has been passed on down to the eldest male of the line, the last one being my father who died intestate in 1958.
The first recorded date in it was around the 1850s as far as I can recall.
I do not know how she came by it, neither do my other two sisters.
If I knew the answers to these daft questions your asking, I would not have spent the eleven years since my mother died trying to discover it's whereabouts
My mother told me when I married in 1955 that it would become my responsibility when she passed on, but there is nothing in writing to that effect. however, what is in writing is my appointment as sole executor and if she knew of the whereabouts of the FAMILY BIBLE, it was her duty to inform me.
