Came across an old family bible belonging to the WOODS-ELLESTON-WORTMAN
family being auctioned on Ebay. It is an 1876 bible with the family record
beginning with the June 6, 1896 marriage of Lewis Ross WOODS and Mamie
ELLESTON both of Estherville, Iowa. It also refers to their son Robert
Elliston WOODS b. 22 Jan 1902 who married Lola Belle WORTMAN on 28 Dec 1922
in Pasadena, California.
Robert & Lola had a daughter Marjorie Jean WOODS b. 21 July 1925 and a son
Robert Lewis WOODS b. 16 June 1934 both in Pasadena, California. I thought
I'd pass this information along in hopes that someone might get the
opportunity to recover a family heirloom. The auction ends December 5,
You can go to www.ebay.com and look for item #513606154.
I am forwarding this look up request to the list in hopes that some one out
there may have some information that will help Carol.
