Note from submitter: The original Bible probably first belonged to E. V. Morris and then her daughter, Hallie Nordhaus Tucker.  She was my husband Leonard's great-grandmother and the daughter of Emma & Henry Nordhaus. The copies were given to me by Leonard's mother, Rowena Tucker Copple, about 1975.  I'm sorry that we don't have the Bible's title page and that I don't know who has the Bible now.
