Butler Family Bible
Seal Cove, Conception Bay.

This "old" Bible was in the possession of the late Elsie May (Butler) Burry (b.1918) of Seal Cove, Conception Bay
and Greenspond, Bonavista Bay at the time of her death on November 18, 2012. The bible originally belonged to
her sister, the late Mabel (Butler) Morgan (1925 - 2006). The contents was transcribed by Mrs. Burry's son-in-law,
Kevin Reddigan before it was passed on to its current owner.
