Samuel Margrave Family Bible

Bible Index

The Bible of Samuel MARGRAVE was owned by Mrs. Edgar OWEN (now deceased), 417 Morgan Street, Harriman, Tennessee who is a descendant of Samuel MARGRAVE.  There is no date on the Bible but it has the following information: Kimber and Sharpless' Stereotype Edition, Stereotyped by E. White, New York Philadelphia Published and Sold by Kimber and Sharpless at their Book-Store, No. 8 South 4th Street.  Samuel MARGRAVE has written his name many times in the front and back of the Bible and from which writing it appears that he made all most all of the entries.
