Anthony Gould Pierce and Louise Louie R. (Cuff) Pierce Bible
John C. Carter
These images were on Facebook by Kimberly Mosley Moore, daughter of Raymond Lester "Sonny" Mosley, Jr. and Anna Marie Loatman, my dads half first cousin.
They are from a Bible that had belonged to Anthony Gould Pierce and Louise Louie R. Cuff Pierce, who can be found on this page:
Notice that the author of the letter to Social Security, Francelia H. Pierce Hughes, doesnt seem to be listed in the report. Shes listed on the Births page of the Bible as well, middle name Hannah. I cant quite make out her brother Chesters middle name (perhaps Larance).
Kimberly said the Bible is very fragile and falling apart, and that these pages were stuck in the front of the Bible. I told her the Family Record pages are usually in the middle (between the Old and New Testament) and perhaps the Births page came loose and someone just stuck it in the front of the Bible. I suggested she go back and look between the Old and New Testaments to see if there are any Marriages or Deaths pages, and she said she would let me know if she found anything else. (She also found a lock of hair in the Bible but I didnt save the scan of that).
