Enoch researchers, please be aware of this news story, "Man Finds 188-Year-Old Bible in Dump Bin" from KSL-TV, available here: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=333&sid=388224

The key quote for you all is:

---begin excerpt---

'Hoskins also looked into the Bible's history and discovered that it belonged to the Enoch family. "So, I also did research on the Internet and found a descendant of Isaac Enoch listed in the Bible," Hoskins said. Enoch was born on Jan. 25, 1775, and he and his children are listed on the outer pages. "I talked to a man named James Lockhart in Coolville, Ohio, and he claims to be a direct descendant of Isaac," Hoskins said.

The two talked for several hours, and 71-year-old Lockhart told Hoskins that he has researched his family genealogy for 40 years and always felt there had to be a family Bible out there. "I mailed him copies of the family history from the Bible, and he said it helped him fill in some of the gaps in his research," Hoskins said.

So James Lockhart, if you are out there, I'm sure you have some distant relatives who would love for you to share! And kudos to Michael Hoskins for hunting down the relatives and offering the information separate from any sale of the book itself.
