Pioneer Bible

I've been enjoying Revee's posts on her Country Roads blog about the old books she collects and her Bible collection. It reminded me of an old Bible that Rylan has in his collection of books as well. This Bible was given to him by his grandmother; a treasure from her collection of old books. She purchased it at a 'yard sale' a few years before. It contained a card with the following history:

This Bible was carried in a covered wagon.
Date of Bible: 1867

Adolph d'Allemand, grandfather of Glenn Curry, autographed this Bible in 1872. Lived in Strasburg, Germany. Went to England. Married an English girl, Marion Wood. He was a language teacher in the countries of Germany, England, and Ireland. Then, came to America in 1870. Became superintendent of the city schools in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Went by covered wagon to western Nebraska.
