Grundy County
Burrows Bible

Submitted by: Catherine Stiles

I have Bible pages for a Burrows family, John G Burrows and Rosannah Myers who were married in Grundy County Dec 22, 1836. There are listings for births, marriages, and deaths of their children.  Apparently the family migrated to Arkansas and Texas.

The Bible was acquired by my grandmother, Carrie Doss Kimbrough (AL-TN-ARK-OK), probably in Arkansas or eastern Oklahoma, probably 1890-1910.
