John Fenton Long Bible
Two family bibles donated to the Webster Groves Historical Society belonged to well-known west St. Louis-area families, that of Otis R. Hawken Jr. and John Fenton Long. These fragile, old books contain pages of family information beginning in the mid-eighteenth century and continuing until the mid-twentieth. All the entries are handwritten and contain birth, death, and marriage names and dates on pages at the end of the bible text.
