Surnames in this Bible:  Gossom, Morgan, Warder


Handwritten inside the front cover:

Thompson Gossoms Book
June 10 1858


Newspaper clipping and a lock of hair found between the pages in Psalms.


Clipping reads:

Captain Elmore D. WARDER is the A.A.G. to General John H. MORGAN, and we have seen paroles given to captured Federal officers, in hi hand-writing, and drawn during the recent raid into Ohio.


Handwritten around some photos of Jesus and Moses in the Bible:

Alice Ann GOSSOM was born July 8 1857.

Thomas B. GOSSOM Jr. was born Feb 27 1861.

Newman GOSSOM was born Nov. ?? ????.

Handwritten on a blank page before the Title page of the Bible:

Alice GOSSOM died the 4 of Oct 1858.

Lucinda P. GOSSOM died Aug 4 1881.
She was 47 years old 24 of the following month.
(editor note: Does this mean she would have been 47 on the 24th of September?)


Footnotes: One of the family records pages from this Bible is very blurry.  I have done my best to transcribe it.  There is always the possibility of errors no matter how legible. The pages from this Bible have been scanned and can be viewed at Gossom Bible Images.
