A hand written copy of this Bible was found in the Bible Notebook of Frederick Lee Edwards. The Bible also appears in "Bible Records of Dobbs County, Vol 3" by William Murphy. There are numerous differences between the two including the spelling of Newet which Lee wrote down as Newet and Bill as Newit. Lee did use the spelling of Newit in his article in the Lenoir County Heritage Book. Also there are many more entries in the Murphy book that Lee had. The last known owner was Edward R. Tull but neither of his daughters has the Bible today so the whereabouts is not known. Lee provided a copy of the actual Bible to Bill Murphy and no doubt there was a copy in his papers we did not see. ECU was kind enough to send a copy of the Bible and this transcription is my interpretation of that copy.
