Family Bible Everson and Talley Family of Marcus Hook, PA and Wilmington, DE

This is an Old Family Bible printed in 1843 by H. & E. Hinney. This is the family Bible of the Everson Family of Marcus Hook, PA and Wilmington, DE.

One member of this family was Albert (Bert) G. Everson, who was a turn-of-the century major league baseball player. There are newspaper clipping tucked in the Bible recording his passing. One reads in part: "Born and raised in Marcus Hook, Pa., Mr. Everson gained fame on local diamonds as a player of unusual skill and was known familiarly to the public as Bert. In addition to playing for Marcus Hook, Media and numerous other teams in the county, Mr. Everson pitched in the Tri-State League and was in the major leagues for a time."

There is also Albert Everson's Commencement Program from his graduation from the Lower Chichester School District in 1884.

There are four pages of Family Records hand written in the Bible-- the first entry reads: "Albert G Everson and Hannah Talley was Married by the Revd Joseph Walker on Thursday the 10th day of Jany 1839 at Marcus Hook Del. Co., Penna."
