The Family Bible of Thomas Elisha & Jane Susan Starr Basinger: Revisited in Better Detail

(This is the last in a series of 4 posts. You can read the first in the series starting here.)

Well, then, all the marriages, births, and deaths have been re-photographed in greater detail. I haven’t transcribed them all, but you should be able to read them. If you want to enlarge them, left-click on any photo.

For those of you who are paying attention, you have already noted that the person in the above photo is Mary M. Densler. She is the only person whose surname is not Basinger or Starr. So who is she? I found her on http://www.findagrave.com and I see that she is buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery. Another mystery.

Whew! What a relief to be done! I worry that something will happen to me before I can get important photos out into the big world, and all the images will be stuck in my camera and/or computer. This Bible will be donated to the Georgia Historical Society who has expressed an interest in it after I contacted them on Sugar’s behalf. In this case, the Bible and/or its contents will be preserved. I like to think that it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t started the ball rolling. So, yay me, and yay all you folks who work to preserve our history.
