The Montgomery-Ham Family Bible
Notes from Marian Ham Miller regarding the Montgomery-Ham family bible: This bible, which obviously was quite old, was held by S. D. (Mack) Ham, Brownwood, Texas, in 1970. No publication date was found. The first two generations may have been copied from the bible published in 1824. The family of Robert M. Ham appeared to have been added at the time events occurred. These entries were not in the same handwriting.
Sadly, the bible was not taken care of and is in deplorable condition. It is a small New Testament without a cover. The ink on the family pages is literally eating away the paper. Marian has put acid free sheets between the family pages, hopefully to help preserve them Marian states that Nora Blair sent it to her grandmother many years ago, saying no one in her family at that time was interested in it. The little bible was passed around through the family until Marian received it.
