This is the family Bible of John McCord who was the grandson of John McCord of Bedford County, Virginia through his son John McCord of Lincoln County, Georgia and his wife Else (Alice) Hyatt.  We are grateful to Mrs. Bernard Preston Wolff of Atlanta, Georgia who took the time to take these pages to the Georgia archives to be copied so that others can use it for research.  Thanks also to Dr. James William McCord of Augusta, Georgia who so kindly sent me these Bible pages.  He and Lou Randall of Australia have been special people in the "giving" of their research over the years.  I have enjoyed our relationship.  These two descend from Elisha McCord and Sarah (Sally) Zellner.  Elisha was the brother of this John McCord and the father of Robert McCord whose family Bible can be found among these McCord Bible Pages.

The Dr. Jabez Pleadius McCord and Mary E. McCord listed below were husband and wife.  They died within 48 hours of each other of Typhoid fever.  Their two children, Jabez, Jr and Cora were raised primarily by their Uncle Zachariah McCord, but both spent some time initially in Lincoln County GA with their Uncle Elisha McCord (son of John McCord).  Jabez Jr became a railroad conductor for the GA Railroad and was a Captain on the "Old Picayune" that ran between Augusta, GA and Thomson, GA.  Cora Annie McCord married Joseph Mackay Brown who became Governor of Georgia during the early 1900s.  Cora was the First Lady of Georgia during his tenure as governor.
