About this Item

This bible contains some family records of G. (Gerhard) F. Kohring who was born on May 13, 1821 near Hannover, Germany - ((?)Hagewede und Lemforde), and his wife - Lotte (Charlotte) who was born in (?)Brockum, Germany on May 11, 1817. Two additional entries are for Doris Kohring - born Dec. 4, 1847, and for Sophi Kohring - born on Feb. 2 (or 21), 1851, - both born in Hagewede. Gerhard Kohring came to the U.S. soon afterwards and was in Galena, illinois in 1864 and also settled in Minnesota. Two additional entries which I cannot make out the first name and the last name - seems to be Cyorlnna Mudcking -,1873; and Heinrich Mudcking - born Sept. 13, 1874. The bible also contains 2 newspaper clippings on the deaths of Gerhard in 1887 and on Charlotte in 1892. They both died in Owatonna, Minn. The bible is about 6 inches by 9 inches and is in full black leather. The back cover is detached and the front cover is about to detach. The spine is very worn with the ends chipped. The front paper has the signature of "G. F. Kohring - Galena, Ills. 1864". Bookseller Inventory # 12164
