o'Donnell Family Bible

Details


Printed by: John E Potter, Philadelphia
Date: After 1878
Size: 31 x 26 x 9cm with clasp.

Condition

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.

Names

Two only, in the following order, on 'Deaths' pages.

In the 'photo gallery' are two photos.


One is of a monument within railings. On the monument is inscribed:

OF ST COLUMB'S CATHOLIC
TOTAL ABSTINENCE SOCIETY DERRY
IN LOVING MEMORY OF ITS FOUNDER
REV. WILLIAM ELLIOTT
WHO DIED 15TH NOVEMBER 1880
AGED 37 YEARS
R I P
The photo is mounted on a card from 'J Glass, Photographer, Londonderry' and the rear has Glass' full details.
The second is of an un-named priest. Also card mounted, on the reverse is 'G. Laidlaw, Artist, Strabane'

Locations


Acquired. Cambridge, but had been bought previously in London.
Mentioned: The photographs were prepared in Londonderry and Strabane, Northern Ireland.
