Roper, James Michael - Son of James and Elizabeth Laley Roper. This bible was presented to James Michael Roper upon his union with Rebecca Jane Milbourn. The entries in the bible are of different handwritings. The first on marriages and births appear to be James Michael's after that it looks to be two other inscribers. As with most family bible records it's more of an idea than actual fact. The bible was restored in the late 1990's by his Great Grand-daughter and is in the possession of her brother James Luther Coulter of Ranson, WV. Note: photo to the left was before the restoration by Cattail Bindings

Photos found in the bible were not labeled. It's believed the center photo is James Roper the Elder. Click group image to enlarge.
