Childress Family Bible, Scotland County, Missouri

This great old family bible contains a wealth of genealogical material on the Childress family of Scotland County, Missouri. It contains a certificate of matrimony in beautiful color, between William F. Childress of Scotland County, Missouri, and Ellen J. Justice of Scotland County, MO, on March 30th, 1856. On the Death's page, it's shown that William departed this life in 1885 (looks like, hard to read) and Ellen died in 1904, and others are listed afterward. There's a page of Family History with various births listed from 1856 to 1864 (very pale, hard to photograph), then there's a page of marriages mentioning the names Childers, Justice, Wallace, Bryan. There's a 'Births' Page with various dates listed. At the end of the bible, there's a photo album of sorts, with 14 family photographs.
Inside the back cover, there are 3 pages of newspaper clippings with death notices.
There's also a obituary for 10 year old Beulah Justice from 1896, and one for Jas. Childers, 35 year old son of Hiram Childers.
