This is not the original family “old English Bible” which was destroyed by fire when the house of Elizabeth’s son, Robert Jason Gilbert was burned down in February 1922.  Two separate family correspondences refer to the fire.  This was a different family bible.

Although locations are not in this bible, Harford County and Baltimore County, Maryland are the locations.
