      From an ancestry.com message board re ebay sale of family bible in 2006:
      This c. 1875 Illustrated Polyglot Family Bible, William Flint & Co., Philadelphia, Pa., and Savannah, Ga., is currently being offered on eBay. It contains the Bible Records of the children of JOHN WAUGH and his two wives, JANET EDGAR and MRS. HELEN MURRAY.

      The Bible was acquired at an estate sale at 2347 Foster N.W. in Grand Rapids, MI, on 14 November 2006. I am no relation to these people so I will not be able to answer any questions on this family other than what I have posted here.

      It is eBay item #180052136886. The auction runs until the evening of Sunday, November 26, 2006.

      She was born 27 Dec 1833, Moffat, Scotland, and d. 30 Oct 1906, Lowell, MA. I believe MURRAY was her married name.

      4. Helen, b. 17 Oct 1882, Byfield, MA, d. Jun 1946, Lowell, Edson Co., MA.
