This family Bible was a gift of Hazel Gehrke (1900-1991), life-long resident of Adair County and graduate of Northeast Missouri State Teacher’s College (BSEd, 1925).  She was the daughter of Carl Gehrke and Edna June Crittenden but her exact relationship to the family recorded in the Bible is unknown. Her grandfather, Albert I Crittenden (1841-1919), is not among those named but was of an age to be a grandchild of Iairus & Eunice Crittenden.  Albert and his wife Emma Sprague (1840-1905) were both natives of New York. 

The Bible was incomplete and the cover detached when it was received, so only the family record pages were retained.  They are torn and fragile but the ink is still clear and the handwriting beautiful and readable.
