This bible was given to my mother, Mary George Meriwether McKay by her mother, Mary Barbara Taliaferro Meriwether, second wife of my Grandfather, William Lucius Meriwether (Seventh generation of Nichelas [sic] Meriwether who was born in either Wales or England. (Date of birth not recorded in records, I have.) (He died Dec. 19, 1678.) My Grandfather’s first wife was Tabitha Baldwin, sister of Dr. Morris Baldwin of Montgomery, Ala.
My Grandmother was Mary Baldwin Taliaferro Meriwether, my Grandfather’s second wife. I am the last member of my Beloved family still living.

From my precious Mother. The above was written by my precious mother, Mary George Meriwether McKay. My father, Jack W. McKay, who died Feb. 20, 1909, at which time I was less than three years of age, may have been named William Jack McKay instead of Jack W. McKay. However, he was known as Jack W. McKay in the “business world,” and signed his name Jack W. McKay. He was listed in the telephone book as J.W. McKay. The deed to our home, 814 S. Court St., Mobile, Ala. Was made out to Jack W. McKay and during the time of my life that I can remember (From age three) my mother signed her name as Mrs. Jack W. McKay. I always signed my name Jack W. McKay. I have never used “Junior” on my name as my father died when I was a baby. (See births listed in this bible.)
