This O.E.S. Holy Bible was presented to my great, great grandmother on May 20, 1946 by Carnation Chapter #167 O.E.S. Was there a specific reason why these bibles were given? Did it require an accomplishment of some sort? Help me out please!!

    I have a number of family Bibles. One was given to my husband's parents the day they were married....given to them by the pastor who married them. Another was given to my grandmother but it doesn't say who gave it to her! I have another with just my great-grandfather's name with the date: 1879. In answer to you question, there may or may not be a specific reason why Bibles were given to people. Regardless, it's nice when they stay in the family and are passed down from one generation to the next.

    This Bible meant that your Great Great Grandmother was a member (meaning
    Initiated into) The Order of the Eastern Star. It is a wonderful organization and means a certain shaping of what your Grandmother believed in and was as a person.

    Yes, I knew she was a member. I have her O.E.S. ring too. I just wondered if there was a special reason, other than being a member, that she got this?
    Thanks for the comment!!
