Please call if you need any information XXX-XXX-XXXX.

The following is some information that I thought you might find useful.

Muletta Waters-Ward moved to California in the early 1970's from Maryland and moved to the West Coast, Ca. 2 or 3 years after we did. She had no surviving family members as far as we knew.

Muletta, the last owner within the family is listed on the "Marriage Page"- married Ralph L. Ward on June 22, 1923.


  • Reverse

The Bible - At the front of the Bible is the Written name - Curtiz Luce, Wooster Ohio.

-Midway through the Bible a list of "Births," "Marriages," and "Deaths" can be found.

The Picture- shows Muletta Waters-Ward at age 6 in 1910 on the far right side. Family lineage is listed on the back. but is is difficult to read.

Please let me know the outcome of the usefulness of the Bible. We are very excited that it has finally made it back to the place it originated.

Thank You, Karen A. Smith
