Wade and Shelton Family Bible Records

Thank you for allowing me to submit my Lee, Pontotoc and Union County Mississippi family history. The following four families lived, died, and married, in these three counties.

Children: Bible Page has the following names listed: (I have this Bible) All were born in Saltillo, Lee County, MS. Bible Page – Family Record

They all signed their names – and I know for a fact – not ONE broke their promise to God.

(Wonder how the world would be – if every home had a page in their Bible and obeyed it)
