Contributed by Mr. John D. Brandenburg, Marietta. The Bible was in possession of John T. DuPree of Gordon, GA at the time of filming. It appears that pages from the Jones Douglass Bible were inserted in the newer Bible, an edition of the American Family Bible Publishing Co., Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Chicago.
