2. O'Neill Family Bible

      This is the start of it all in our particular family line. Hugh O'Neill brought this Bible from Ireland to Ohio and it still exists in the family.
      The hands belong to my cousin Delbert Shackle of Summerfield, Ohio. As Delbert is getting "up there," several of us are chomping at the bit to see who inherits the Bible next. I am definitely in the running!
     The left-hand page you see describes Hugh's siblings and their parent's marriage, perhaps the only place in the world this information exists.


  1. Ron,

    Those are actually David's hands. My sister took this picture years ago at an O'Neill reunion at Locust Grove Cemetery. That blurry black blob in the background is me!

    And how does one get in line for inheritance? lol

  2. I stand corrected. See how great this works!

    Glad to find this blog Ron. Keep up the good work. And an interesting question about the bible...
