Pryor Bible – Marion County, TN Pryor Family

Sometimes people not related to the Pryors come up with the most interesting things. Remember back in 2007 when some Pryor graves were found in Kansas? (see post). I was contacted by someone who purchased an old Bible. It’s a Pryor Bible that purports to be from the line of Marion County Pryors. It doesn’t have genealogy names and dates in it, but it’s signed by Madison C Pryor and also contains the name Richard S Pryor. It was published in 1854, before the Civil War. The owner has kindly sent photos– THANK YOU FOR SHARING THESE!. If someone is from this line and would like the Bible I can put you in touch with the owner– they made it clear they would want this Bible to go to a good home.
