Moses Spencer Bible

The Bible of Moses Spencer (Baldwin line) is an excellent original source for a number of dates in the Spencer-Ayres-Guerrant part of the family tree. When I obtained copies of the Bible records, the Bible was in the possession of Rob Ayres, 119 Chase Road, Marlborough, MA  01752. (Mr. Ayres is apparently not related to our Ayres family, but he was unfortunately not interested in having the Bible placed back within the family.)
