Lauderdale Langham Family Bible

 Collection
Identifier: C-0033

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of a single item: a Bible purchased by Ruby Langham Lauderdale's grandmother, Elizabeth Jane Bannerman Langham. Mrs. Lauderdale noted in the fly leaf that Mrs. Langham bought the Bible from a salesman "not realizing it was not a King James Version," so it was never used for scripture. However, records for the family of Benjamin Walker Langham and Frances Lou (Fannie) Walker Langham were recorded in the register, dating from 1879 to 1960.
