This Bible belonged to my great- great-great-grandmother on my father’s side of the family. I found it many years ago tucked away in an old trunk in the attic. She was born Miss Anna Catherine Bender in Wurtenburg Germany in 1791, she married John George Guinther born in Wurtenburg 1782 and who had served in Napoleon’s Army.
The writing inside it’s hard and rough cover reads: This beautiful Bible book belonged to Catherina Gunther. I received it from my daughter at Christmas in Mohringen in 1814. I will live my life in the name of Jesus. Jesus shall guide my steps through life and prepare my soul for eternity. My last words shall be for Jesus, through Jesus, by Jesus.
