Moore Family Bible

My father, Henry James Martin is fortunate to have in his posession the Bible of his maternal grandmother, Bithia Elizabeth (Keith) Isom. Tucked into it were photocopies from the Moore family Bible, originally belonging to the family of my mother's paternal granmother, Emma (Moore) Glenn. It seems that my grandfather Aden Glenn had given the bible to my mother at some point, but later took it back, but not before my mother made these photocopies. The eventual fate of this bible is unknown.

This Bible contains a wealth of genealogical info on the Moores. Follow these links to images:
