Treasure Chest Thursday - Brane Family Bible

One of my most treasured possessions is the bible kept by my Great-Great Grandparents, John Thomas Brane and Marilla Scott Brane

Inside the front cover they glued and taped obituaries for family members from the local newspaper dating back to 1872.

Inside are listings of marriage dates:

Family births:

And family death dates:

Listed on this page second to last is the date of death for my great-great grandfather John Thomas Brane on 11 Jul 1934.  Also listed is my great-great grandmother Marilla Elma Scott Brane on 21 Mar 1948. 
Written in by another family member, this is the last date entered in this treasure of a family bible.
