Volunteer Notes:

Special Unique Findings or Bible Features:
The death entry for Joseph Beers has a bible verse quoted.

A special note was made for Emily Beers in regards to her death – Aged 93 years 8 months 11 days.

The most intriguing item for me was a handwritten letter. This had to have held a very special meaning to the family because even after a section was torn, someone took the time to stitch it back together with thread.

Thoughts From Our Volunteers:
I thankful for the opportunity to help transcribe these items for your family. May they be a blessing to you and your family!
