McDONALD BIBLE

Transcribed by Charles Dobie

           This Bible is owned by LCGS member Mr. D.W. MacDonald. He showed me the original Bible and gave me photocopies for my files.

           The inscriptions are on the first blank page of Vol. 1 of the two-volume Bible. Mr. MacDonald added additional information on his transcription of the photocopy and I've added this in [square brackets].

           He said that this McDonald family, originally from Rutherglen, Scotland, came to Canada on the ship Commerce, in 1818, and settled first in Lanark County, Ontario.

           The Bible is a two-volume large format Bible. Relevant text from the title page is:
