Submitted by Don G. THOMAS, 131 San Jose St., San Leandro, CA 94577

Mr. THOMAS wrote that the material submitted was photographed by John Paul KING in Waynesboro, Tennessee in 1972. At that time the Benjamin KING Bible was in the possession of Vida KING of Waynesboro. The transcription was made from slides that John Paul KING sent to Mr. THOMAS in 1974.

Attempts have been made to locate the original Bible, but as of this date, it has not been found. We are publishing the material because of its significance to the early history of Wayne County and because it provides proof of several family connections in the Three Churches area of Indian Creek.

Benjamin KING was a Methodist minister and founded the Victory Methodist Church which was located across Waterfall Branch from the King Cemetery. The church was founded in the 1820's and a building was still standing in March 1900 when it washed away. Rev. Benjamin KING, his wife and members of his family are buried in the King Cemetery on Dry Branch of Waterfall Branch. Per Mr. THOMAS's letter, Benjamin KING married Elender COLE.

The family records from the KING Bible appear on the pages between the Old and New Testaments. No date of publication is given for the old Bible.

Contributed by Edith McDONALD, 508-B West Frontier, Eloy, AZ 85231.
Mrs. McDONALD sent a copy of the following letter from Marie GREESON STRICKLIN of Waynesboro, TN to accompany the Josiah S. KILBURN Bible records.

Sun June 24, 1990
Dear Edith,
I have the Bible you mentioned. My son ran you copies of all the pages containing family records. There is a copy machine in our church & we went this P.M. and made the copies. Some of the writing was in pencil that was barely readable. He has printed as best as he could make out on the side of the copies.

On one of the pages it is written "this book came into the hands of C. L. KILBURN in 1892." C. L. (Carol) KILBURN was my mother's father. Cora was her name and she married Herman GREESON. Ora was Blanche's [Blanche CASTLEMAN] mother. Blanche passed away Jan. 28, 1989. After grand daddy KILBURN died, grandmother lived with mother and Blanche's mother. The Bible was at Mothers. When Mother passed away I gave it to Aunt Ora and of course Blanche had it. Blanche's son John lives in her house.

You have my permission and Blanche's son John and her daughter Barbara to use these records.

I've going to return the Bible to John CASTLEMAN Blanche's son.
Will mail them Mon. Morn -
With Christian Love, Marie GREESON STRICKLIN, 105 W. Frank Boyd St., Waynesboro, Tenn. 38485

This bible was the property of the Lovick R. MEREDITH and Annabellah E. MATTHEWS MEREDITH family. They were married in 1854.

The original covers, fly sheet and a portion of the pages are missing. The New Testament flysheet shows that the bible is a KIMBER & SHARPLESS' STEREOTYPED EDITION, published and sold by Kimber and Sharpless, and stereotyped by E. White, New York. The Kimber and Sharpless bookstore address is given as No. 8 South Fourth Street, Philiadelphia.

This bible has been restored and was once in a badly dilapidated condition. The bible contains two family records. The family record pages original to it are printed in red ink. Judging from the entries it appears the bible is circa 1860-1870.
