Elizabeth G Vrooman Bible

Submitted by Kathy Manning

     I've come into possession of an old family bible that has the above mentioned names in it. I have sent messages to people with trees on with the name Tunis Baxter in them to see if they're interested in receiving the bible. This bible was in a house in West Leyden, Lewis County, NY that was being torn down and was "rescued" by a friend of mine who didn't want to see it destroyed and thought maybe I would know how to get this to a family member who would treasure it.
     Some of the other names in the bible are: James Stanbro; Mrs. Patria; Lawrence H. Baxter; John M. Strobeck; George Stanbro; one of the inscriptions in the bible says, "This book belongs to Elizabeth G. Vrooman (maybe Sharon) 1850 (then) Stanbro; Clara Stanbro dau of George L Stanbro; there are many Baxter, Stanbro and Vrooman births and deaths listed; Marriage certificate for Charles Stanbro and Ella Parce and a note stating Ella F Parce Stanbro died 4 Nov 1883. There is more information in this bible.
     I've found reference to Sharon, NY in it as well as Maitland, Ontario. I'm looking for a good home for this bible as I, myself research genealogy and would love for someone to have kept this information for our family. If you know of anyone who may be interested in this bible, please have them contact me. I know how important this information is to someone.

And though the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.
