o'Donnell Family Bible
Printed by: John E Potter, Philadelphia
Date: After 1878
Size: 31 x 26 x 9cm with clasp.
Good. The spine is starting to come away from the front cover. The genealogy pages (5 in all) are essentially empty and there are pages at rear for photographs. It would make a good purchase for someone wishing to start a new Family Bible in the old tradition.
Two only, in the following order, on 'Deaths' pages.
- Rose oDonnell of Innissall died January the 18 1883 aged 50 years
- Meaggy oDonnell who died October 22 1879 aged 22
In the 'photo gallery' are two photos.
One is of a monument within railings. On the monument is inscribed:

The photo is mounted on a card from 'J Glass, Photographer, Londonderry' and the rear has Glass' full details.

Acquired. Cambridge, but had been bought previously in London.
