(Capt.) Charles & Mary (Crawford) Yancey Family Bible
(Capt Charles Yancey was son of Robert & Temperance (Dumas) Yancey)
Source: The following information is taken from a document in the James P. Root Collection in the Rhode Island Historical Library Archives. It would appear that Mrs. Frank A Crawford Vanderbilt (author of Laurus Crawfurdiana - a book containing information on the genealogy of the Crawford and Yancey families) may have employed Mr. Root in researching the necessary information to publish her book - published in 1883.
Although the information in the Root Collection does not make reference to a Yancey Bible, per se, the format would seem to indicate that the original source was probably a family Bible.
