  3. [S1047] Lydick Family Bible. Sometimes referred to as the Harris Family Bible because the name of Uriah Harris is written in the front, it seems more appropriate to call it the Lydick Family Bible as the births recorded are the family of Mary Ann (Lydick) Harris. The Bible passed from the Harris' to their granddaughter, Elizabeth "Bess" (Harris) Stewart, who then gave it to her granddaughter, Barbara (Newell) Suarez.
