Kurio (Wendish Bible and Trunk)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kurio, Kurjo, Germann, Kunns, Zwor
My name is Nan Kurio. My grandfather’s grandfather was
Michael Kurio (Kurjo in Wendish) who came over on the Ben Nevis
in 1854 to Serbin, Texas from Lusatia, Germany.

Listed below is my Kurio Family Tree:

Nan Kurio
Norris Andrew Kurio (1921-2006) and Mary Curl Kurio (1924-
Otto Gerhardt Kurio (1895-1961) and Alma Schroeder (1898-1987)
Johann Andreas Kurio (1856-1940) and Maria Germann (1861-1939)
Michael Kurio (Kurjo) (1821-?) and Christiana Kunns (1833-?)
Andreas Kurio (Kurjo) and Maria Zwor

I have a Wendish Bible prepared by Johann Petschke and published
in 1797, that was in a trunk supposedly brought over in 1854 to
Serbin, Texas by Michael Kurio on the Ben Nevis.

I am curious as to the meaning or significance of the symbol on the
top of trunk and any other information or ownership of this Bible.
I would like to post pictures of these items.
