The Frank Dorian Baldwin Bible

Although not my direct ancestor, my great granduncle Frank Dorian Baldwin owned a Bible similar to his father, my 2nd great-grandfather Benjamin Franklin Baldwin, Jr.  As with B. F. Baldwin's Bible, Frank's Bible was deemed lost after the death of my grandaunt Mattie Louise Baldwin (for more information see the previous post about B. F. Baldwin's Bible).

The last known copies of the genealogy information in the Bible were made around 1986 and are shown below.
