I posted a old Bible a few nights ago I found at a flea market. After a little research I'm glad to say it is headed home to family members. The Bible was found in Summerville, Ga. and returned to Oklahoma.

Are these family members of yours? If so, it's an amazing coincidence you found it.

Not family members, just lucky when I did a search with "Bing". Most likely the reason he showed up was being a Cherokee. Now I wonder if he was a important Tribal person.

Stories like this are fun to hear about. Nice you could get it back to family.

Thank you for taking the time to find the family it belongs to.

We have ours and for us it means a lot. We keep them both on top of a old cedar chest and if the kids or grandkids want to see something they know where to go and not have to search.

FAMILY Bibles need to be with FAMILY. Ours disappeared several years ago to

"who knows where".
