"The attached six pages were copied from a small brown Bible that belonged to Dempsey Sutton. It is in remarkably good condition considering it shows a lot of use. It was brought to Texas by Anderson Sutton. It has been wet. The story was that it got wet fording a stream on the trip from Arkansas to Texas in 1851/52. As of August 12, 1995 when these copies were made, it was in the possession of
