Russell Family Bible 

2015 translation by Phyllis Russell Franklin 


Writing of John Rollen Russell born 1791,  David Robertson Russell born 1821 and Martha Crawford 
Russell born 1835 begins on the blank page of Bible ending the Old Testament.  

Lightest pen writing appears to be that of John Rollen Russell, dark pen writing appears to be that of David Robertson Russell, additional writing some in pencil and some in ink appears to be that of Martha Crawford Russell,  second wife of David Robertson Russell

9 months and 12 days.

This Russell Bible is in very poor condition and should not be handled any more than absolutely necessary.  It has no cover or back and many Bible page missing.  The family record pages are intact, however, since they were centrally located in the middle section of the work which has been protected.
