Albert Sytsma and Van Loon Family Bible

When my gr-gr grandfather, Dirk Willemus van loon died in Oakley KS in the late 1800s, the family sent some belongings, including an old family Bible with names, dates etc of Dirks family, back to IA to my gr-grandfather, William van Loon. In the late 50s my grandfather from IA visited Albert Sytsma, his cousin in Hayes KS various times, and at that time he gave Albert the Bible as it had more of Albert's part of the family listed, i.e., the half-sisters and bros by Dirks second wife, including Alberts mother, Wilhelmina van Loon. (in old Dutch handwriting). I wonder if anyone in the Sytsma family has run across the Bible--don't know who Albert J.'s children were or if it remains in the family--hopefully someone has it who values it!
