All that remains of this bible is four pages we found after my Grandmothers death.

The bible first belonged to Ferdinand Dora and his wife Nancy Ann Beauchamp who were both from Somerset, Maryland and came to Kentucky about 1797. Second owners their son Beauchamp M. Dora and his wife Eleanor (Nellie) Heaverin. Third owners their son John F. Dora and Lucie M. Smith. Not all Births, Deaths and marriages have locations, if not noted it occured in Bracken co. Kentucky. I will list these if known to the right in brackets if I added the data I have found and occured somewhere besides Bracken co. Kentucky.
