Family Bible of James Speer & Penelope Jacks.

Submitted by Bill Wallace

This Bible was bought by Allen Freeman about 1992 in a book store sale in Tyler, Smith County Texas. He bought it as a car lot load and had it in storage until May 2012 of this year. He had moved to Georgia and decided to go through all the books he had when he found it and decided to look through it. When he found the family records he went online to FindaGrave and thatís when he found James Speer Sr. memorial that I had placed and he contacted me.

These files are submitted by volunteers just like you! I make it a habit that anytime I work with records, whether for myself or to share with others, I submit them to the USGenWeb/TXGenWeb project. It doesn't take much extra effort and it really can help many people. I'm very grateful to the many volunteers for all the great info provided.

If you agree, please email, Scott Fitzgerald with your submission.
