Bible with Photo

UnknownThere is a bible at the Clinton Co. Historical Society.  They got it from the estate of Gerda Neill.  The photo  was inside the bible but we don't know if she is one of the people listed or not.  The bible seems very old, but I could find no date.  The spine says "Holy Bible Oxford Concordance, Teacher's Edition.  Oxford".   Following is info that was handwritten inside the front and back covers.  To me, it looks like at least two different people wrote the info.
