My mother (Mary Claire Bondurant Warren) transcribed Timothy's Bible many years ago and now has it in her possession at her mother's passing back in 2001. She spent her summers in Pavo staying with her grandparents, Virginia Evelyn "Jennie" Brice & Joseph Monroe Brannon DDS (the town Dentist). We traveled down there last 2 days working in courthouses and visiting my great-grandparents home and both cemeteries to help her remember and confirm some old photos she has in her possession from her mother's collection. It is her hope to put down on paper all the details and document as much as possible for posterity what she has learned over her 84 years about the Brices. I put the transcription of Timothy's Bible pages on his Memorial #122689791 for others to see what was contained.
