The Bible contains newspaper clippings for the death of Chauncey Dennington Barrows
who was killed in an auto accident at the age of 23.
The Bible also contains a newspaper clipping about the death of James Arden Barrows who was killed in World War II. The article lists him as “missing in action”. The Bible pages state he was killed while on Armed Guard Duty on a Merchant Marine ship.
This Bible contains many letters and notes with family history that is not written on the pages of the Bible. That information is in Volunteer Notes section.
A 1947 letter from Dr. EM Wilder (Edwin M Wilder) to Grace D Barrows states, “You must know where the family Bible and other family records are to be found. Please take all the time you want and answer as many of them as you can.” In the closing of the letter he writes, “Please don’t think that I am asking too much. You are the only living descendant of Luther Wilder that I know of and I am very anxious to get all these family records down in black and white before I get too old to work at this hobby of mine- I’m over 75 now.”

Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
I pray this Bible and the extensive family history contained on the pages and additional notes and letters, finds its way back to the family. It is obvious the family history was important to Dr EM Wilder as expressed in his letter to Grace D Barrows (Hattie Grace Wilder Dennington Barrows).
