Looking for Pleasant Haggard's Bible

Looking for Pleasant Haggard's Bible

I've seen references to a bible owned by Pleasant H Haggard, and was wondering if anyone knew where the bible might be.

One website says:
Holy Bible, published by Fessenden and Co., Brattleboro, Vermont 1836.
The Bible was in possession of Dr. J. C. Allen, V. S., Winchester, KY in 1924. (*Note* Name: John C Allan Home in 1920: Winchester Ward 5, Clark, Kentucky Occupation: Veterinary surgeon)

First published in The Pilgrim News Letter, June 1924.
The family records of Pleasant Haggard of Allensville, Kentucky.

"From book "Fox Cousins by the Dozens" by my Aunts, Nellie Fox Adams and Bertha Fox Walton, states Haggard information taken from family bible that belonged to Pleasant Haggard. Owned by Chester Haggard, Clark County, KY in 1971. pg 172-173"

I'm trying to prove whether or not Pleasant & Elizabeth are the parents of my husband's GGG-Grandfather Lewis Haggard born 1811 in Kentucky. The bible transcription lists, Lewis Haggard born Oct. 23, 1816. Could it be a transcription error, or do I have the wrong family?

Wrong Lewis Haggard. There are 3 Lewis Haggards born in the 1810"s in Ky. You are probably looking for the Lewis that married Joice Lucinda Burrus and went to Randolph Co MO.

There are 3 Lewis Haggard found in Clark Co KY. Lewis Haggard born 23 Oct 1811 Clark Co KY died 21 Jan 1881 Randolph Co MO. He was married to Joice Lucinda Burrus 15 Jan 1833. They went to MO between 1836-1838. Had at least 8 Children. Parents not known. Lewis P. Haggard born 23 Oct.1816 Clark Co KY was married to Mary Ann Chism Harlow 5 Jun 1852 Clark Co KY. They had no issue. They are found in the Census of Clark Co KY 1860-1880. His parents may be Pleasant Haggard and Elizabeth Watts. Lewis Colby Haggard born 29 June 1821 Clark Co KY died 18 Jan 1908 Tampa Florida was married to Mary Ann Broaddus 5 Sep 1855 Madison Co KY. They were in Bates Co MO before 1860 when they are found in the census. They had at least 6 children. I have as his parents John Haggard, Jr. and Mourning Quisenberry I am related to all three through their marriages so it does become confusing.
