Bishop Henry Egly Family Bible

I have the Egly family bible, don't know if it came over on the boat with the family. My grandfather was the oldest and it got pasted down to him. I remember as a child seeing it in the dining room and when my grandfather had it rebound. I took it to Berne last year, thinking that the church may want it for their archives, but my cousin said to keep it because it might not be appreciated, as much as I do. It is beautiful, but unfortunately, no one wrote anything in it. I was so hoping that there would be notes. Maybe I will get it out tonight to explore to see if it is from Bishop Henry or from the old family farm, in Geneva. Have any of you gone back to see the homestead? The barn and home are build of Walnut, so still standing The second house (Summer House) is gone. I have a photo of it from when Henry and Kathryn lived there. Unlike today, the kids kept coming home.
