Family bible printed 1850. This copy has embossed leather boards with the front cover separated along with several early pages.

Family information starts with the marriage of Samuel McClure and Hannah Brady on December 26, 1793 with the bible apparently purchased and family history started by a son William McClure and his wife Mary Ann Hays.

There are several loose sheets including a list of the Duncan portion of the family births ranging from 1801 to 1822 plus other information including Snyder, Samuel, Zuendel, Bowes and Bowers. The bible containing the old and new testaments was published in New York by the American Bible Society and printed in 1850.
