THE LANGSTON BIBLE

This copy of a Bible record was sent to me by B.C. LANGSTON, Jr. of
Raleigh, N.C. who obtained it from the owner of the bible Evelyn
Langston PHILLIPS of Kinston, N.C., with his permission to contribute
the record. On the record itself it states that it was copied from the
original Family LANGSTON Bible by Della Rhodes Langston and given to
Evelyn Langston Phillips of Kinston, N.C. in 1954.

[Note: The LANGSTON family lived in Lenoir Co., around the Contentnia
area, since the early 1700's. --ssm]

[Editor's Note: The order of the records imply reorganization by the
original transcriber, and possibly some paraphrasing and/or annotating
of the material. Some additional reformatting was necessary in order to
make the entries readable in a text-only file.--ER]
