Please check all photos for detailed condition. Coming with the Bible are a set of books, lithograph print, local records and pamphlets, photographs that all traces back to the Richards family members.
One article helps to identify the honorable military history of the family for 11 generations starting from a Indian fighter who arrived with the Mayflower. Other documents point out LTC Richards' son, also a military man, serving as the principle of a high school in Mexico, NY.
Melzar Clinton Richards, another son of LTC Richards, is a West Point graduate with a funeral tributary article retracing his life. Some of these documents has binding tears but are generally readable copies.
