The first record (Charles Myrick Bible) I copied from Charles Myrick’s old Bible. The page it was written on came out and was given me by Charlie Burrows, a descendant of Charles Myrick, so I own the original record.
The second record (John Charles Myrick’s Bible) was copied from my grandfather, John Charles Myrick’s Bible which I own. John Charles was son of Jesse Myrick and grandson of Charles and Martha Myrick.
The third record was copied from John Jordan Nicholson’s old Bible. He was father of my grandmother, Sarah Rivers (Nicholson) Myrick. The Bible is in my possession.
