The Harding Family Bible
The following is an extracted copy of the family Bible of Mason and Margaret (Shelton) Harding. My understanding is that this copy was made by Gordon E. Lyons of Kansas City, MO. The extracted copy was given to Charles Mallette of Houston, Texas, prior to Mr. Lyon's death in 1974. Mr. Mallette sent a copy of it to me in 1995.
All I have is a typed copy of the original. Since Mr. Lyons evidently extracted this data, I feel that he did not own the original. Due to the wealth of information that this Bible contains, I thought I'd pass it on to other researchers. I do not have a photocopy of the Bible, and in fact have no further information on it. I would like to locate the original version. If you know where it is, please let me know.
Notes: The extracted copy is a typewritten document. It is subdivided into five "pages" which identified the original page numbers in the Bible. The data is separated into two columns, which I will designate as Column 1, Column 2 below. The original extractor must have had problems reading all of the data, since there are missing data identified by hyphens (---) and question marks (??). Apparently the Bible was illegible or barely legible. I will faithfully reproduce all of the typewritten information, except portions that are denoted as strikeouts, since these were the typist's errors (as noted in a footnote). I do not have any information on the copyright date of the Bible, so I don't know if it was authentic or a recollection. My notations are identified with my initials (TLS:)
Do you have any information about this family bible? If so, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
