Tilmon Woodhouse Family Bible

In 1978 this Bible was owned by Mattie Iona Outlaw Saunders (1912-1989) of Grandy, NC [see her tombstone here].  Mattie Iona was the d/o John Homer Outlaw & Martha Caroline Evans.  Martha Caroline (Evans) Outlaw was born Mar. 20, 1876 to Jesse Evans & Polly M.F. Woodhouse, d/o Tilmon Woodhouse & Martha Caroline Williams  .  There is a tag in the Bible that reads “Given to me by Mrs. Louie Barco” and is signed "Iona Outlaw Saunders".  As of November 2010, no one knows who the present owner might be.  For more information and some photos, visit this site.  Tillman/Tilmon Woodhouse is found in the 1850 and 1860 census as well as subsequent census records.
