This family Bible was passed down from Thomas Jefferson and Susan S. Triplett
to their youngest son Edwin Franklin Triplett, to their grandson Melvin P. Triplett, to their granddaughter Nell Triplett Tucker and to their great grandson Zelba Francis Tucker of Fresno, California who now has the bible in his possession. Although Thomas and Susan Triplett had both been married, had children and were widowed previously to their marriage with each other, this Bible only records the four children of their marriage together.

The Bible is black leather, sculptured and has gold inlay. The cover is divided into four sections which say, "Search the Scripture, For in Them Ye Think, Ye have Eternal Life, And They Testify of me." The names T. J. & S. S. Triplett are engraved on the cover. The Bible is published by the National Publishing Company & Jones Brothers & Co. It states: Superfine Edition, New Illustrated, Devotional & Practical Polyglot containing the old and new testaments together with Apocrypha, Concordance & Psalms in metre and a carefully abridged edition of Dr. Wm Smith's complete dictionary of the Bible, embellished with 500 fine scripture illustrations & maps. Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1870 by J. R. Jones in the office of the Librarian of Congress at Washington, District of Columbia.
