CRAWFORD BIBLE

This Bible is in the Perth Museum archives.

This Bible was part of the Larry TURNER estate, and was among the artifacts and documents donated by his estate to the Perth Museum, in November, 1996.
The Bible is a large format, leather-bound volume. The births, marriages and deaths are recorded on pages provided for that purpose, between the Old and New Testaments.
