Bauknight Bible Record
Contributed by George and Margie Bouknight Ivey
We are not in possession of the Bouknight bible only the two fragile family record pages. Somewhere along the way these two pages were removed from this bible. We do not know who or if the bible is still in existence. The most likely owners of this bible and/or the family record pages were 1). Naomi Meetze Bouknight & Jesse Bouknight, 2). Louisa Florence Howard Bouknight & Elijah Artemus "Big Pappa" Bouknight, 3). Martha Ann Elizabeth "Bessie" Coogler Bouknight & Darling Sidney "Jim" Bouknight, 3). Helen Elizabeth Bouknight Keever & Harold George Keever and 4). Margie Ann Bouknight Ivey & George William Ivey, Jr. The only owners that we are not absolutely sure of are Lousia & Artemus Bouknight but they were mostly owners at one time. Margie & I are not owners of the two family record pages only the caretakers for a short while!" by George Ivey, Jr.
