The grandson who has the Bible did not make a copy of the title page for
me to get the date, but his mother Evelyn Haynes Taylor, daughter of
Maggie Jones identified the Bible and writing as that of her mother.
Evelyn died from Pneumonia March, 2000 at age 91.  She was vital in mind
and spirit right up to the end.

The following are the best transcriptions I can make of a copy of a Bible
that is falling apart, and torn. Commas added are mine and comments in
[].  Spelling was left as is.

BIBLE REOCRDS OF ADA ALMA HUFF JONES wife of James Dock Jones.  The Bible was lent to me by Onzell Jones Esco , the daughter of Alma Ada Huff and James Dock Jones.

 A good portion of the Old Testament is missing , but the sheets to write births/deaths./mearriages were in the middle between Old and New Testament.  There is no front page, but I the center is the following information;

Red Letter Art Edition with the words of Jesus Printed in Red.
(trade)
The COMBINATION
  (mark)
NEW TESTAMENT of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Showing in simple form all changes, additions and omissions made by the revisers, and enabling all readers to see at a glance wherein the two version differ. Translated out of the Origianl Tongues and with the former Translations diligently compared and Revised.  Conformabel to the Edition of 1611, commonly known ats the Authorized or King James Version

At the botton it has a globe surrounded by rays.  On the globe is a book entitled Holy Bible, a "belt across the botton 2/5 stating "The Light of the World".  The world is resting on a book and below are the words "Trade Mark"  There is no date that I can find in the portion of the Bible that remains. 

MARRIAGES:  Center page:

What Therefore God Hath Joined Together  Let Not Man Put Asunder:
This is to Certify
That:  Mr. James Dock Jones  And Miss Alma Ada Huff Were Jointed in the Bonds of Holy Matrimony
At [home of ] Mr. James R. Huff on the 8 day of November in the year of
our Lord 1908
In Presence of a Large Congeration (sic) signed By Brother Phil Davis

Another plain marriage page has the same marriage listed,  No other
marriages entered into to Bible.
