STORY/ABOUT:
My family has been involved with the Salem Baptist Church at Gumeracha ever since it was built, so when I found this old bible that was presented to my great great grandma Phebe Randell nee Robbins), for her services of teaching Sunday School at the Church, it didn’t surprise me, but it is still a very nice memento to have. The second photo two sort-of shows the embossed P. Randell on the cover, with photo three showing in the inscription.
