John Washington Baker Bible

This is a transcription of the John Washington Baker Bible Record. Although John Baker lived in Clark county, his father, Lorenus lived and preached in Crawford County and many of John Baker's descendants lived in Crawford County. The Bible's cover page is missing, in fact the text starts with Genesis 5:9, but in the middle of the Bible is: "Translated out of the original Greek and with the former translations diligently compared and revised New York: American Bible Society 1856."

Many thanks to Rita Millis for sending this Bible record for all to enjoy!
