[Bible current owner is unknown]
[Copies of the bible pages provided by Roy Wesley Mumaw]
In about 1973 an elderly citizen (he was late 70's or early 80's), intrigued by the last name, brought me (Roy Mumaw) these pages from his family bible. He felt that we were related. Since these are the only pages he copied, the publication date is unknown as well as the name of the original owner. The Reppeto and Mumma names are the prominant ones on these pages. We now believe that this gentleman was Charles E.Grote, b. abt 1903 whose mother was Elizabeth Mumma.
On the "Memoranda" page:
The first twelve entries are written in what is now a sepia colored ink and appear to all have been written at the same time. The last date shown was 1881.
Lines 13 & 14 are written in a blue ink (latest date of 1909).
Line 15 (the last) was written in a black ink (latest date of 1915).
On the "Deaths" page:
Ink is a blue-grey in color and looks like it was all written at the same time. (latest date is 1862)
