      Talked with Jenny again last night. She tried to tell me some of the things that were in the bible (it's about 12" long, 9" wide and 4-5" thick ). She said it was dated 1492, but I'm thinking that may have been a copyright date as the first entries are Charles F. and Elizabeth. There's William & Bessie, Clarence, William & Elizabeth, William & Cynthia Gimple Kerclia (sp?) Was Walter's first name William, as there is a William Walter b. 1-19-1894 d. 2-21-1966.

      Not sure these are the children of William Walter and Bessie York Oldham. They are listed in obituary of William Walter's grandmother. Since all other grandchildren mentioned are accounted for in the other families - these must be Walter's children.
