The Bible of
Joshua and Lucinda Presley Wiggins
Contributed by June P. Thomas
RecentIy, I had the pleasure of visiting with the granddaughter of Joshua (1818-1879) and Lucinda Presley (1818-1895) Wiggins. Her name is Cora Wiggins Booker and she is the daughter of Willis Anthony Wiggins, son of Joshua and Lucinda. Joshua passed his Family Bible to his son Willis, and the daughter of Willis gave me the following material, a photo copied from the Bible of Joshua Wiggins. Since so many of us descend directly from Joshua and Lucinda, I am sure that you will also appreciate Cora Wiggins Booker's kindness in permitting me to print the following.
