Bible of Francis Asbury Campbell
 

BIBLE OF FRANCIS ASBURY CAMPBELL

This Bible was found in the house of John Taylor James in Madison County as it was being torn down. It was wedged in between the stair case and the wall. It had been rained on and most of the pages were stuck together and were already crumbling. It was very difficult to transcribe. The Bible is in possession of James Strickland.

John Taylor James married Serapta Beard, the granddaughter of Lucy Jane Campbell Fortson. Lucy was the sister of Francis A. Campbell.
