Page 165 "As editor, I feel that these Merriwether Bible Records should be preserved. The fifth known child of George Schwartz was John Brown Schwartz (M.2.5.) who married Mary Jane Merriwether 2 Nov 1854."

Note by webmaster: I found that Mrs. Everhart is deceased and her heirs do not know who owns the bible that was cited.
If you know of the location of this bible please contact. me. It has surely passed into the Schwartz family.
