I am descended from Zachary Taylor French. I do not know the answer to that
question, but I would like to hear from you if you find it. Zachary's Bible
is as far back as we go. I helped a
little with the book on him written by Gene Jackson.
Anyone know the whereabouts of Zephaniah French's bible?
somewhere in Davis CO, IA.
