Scope and Content Note

The Smith-Abell Family Bible Collection consists of The Holy Bible; Containing The Old and New Testaments: Translated Out of The Original Tongues; And With The Former Translations Diligently Compared And Revised. With Marginal Readings, References, And Chronological Dates published in New York by by Thomas Mason and George Lane, For The Methodist Episcopal Church, At The Conference Office, 200 Mulberry Street with James Collord, Printer in 1839. The Bible was owned by the Smith-Abell family and includes genealogical entries (birth and death dates) for family members from 1818-1883. Smith and Abell are the only surnames found in the entries. The Abell Family and, perhaps the Smith Family as well, were predominantly from Chester County, SC. The Bible is in good shape, but all the genealogical entries were scanned and the copies should be used as surrogates to help preserve the original Bible.


The Smith-Abell Family Bible was most likely originally donated by Dr. Helen Abell, Assistant Professor in the Winthrop College of Education.
