This is the front page of my family bibe:
There are two inscriptions. The first reads:
May 29th 1877
and the second, interleved with the first:
To George with
love from Mother
on his seventeenth
Birthday December 23
He will never leave thee
"nor forsake thee
George was my paternal Grandfather, Fanny his mother. We don't know who, or where, "Fitzmorris" was.
Tell me what you think!
