  • Certificate of Baptism for Michael Johns, baptized February 6, 1955 in south forth Worth Baptist Church by Pastor Roy E. Ladd.
  • Another listing of family records, not on formal Bible pages, gives some contradicting dates:

    • Jessie Hearn born January 18, 1885

  • Handwritten poem taped onto page:

Home

My broke hip hurts, I cannot sleep.

I wanted tossing, instead of weep.

For happy thoughts, raced thru my mind

As are expressed in following lines.

I’m gong Home. I’m on my way

To my Heavenly Home. There to stay

Or by faith I can see.

Loved ones with Jesus waiting for me.

 

And when I reach that Golden Shore.

I’ll meet those I’ve prayed for One and One.

No Joys on Earth can compare,

To the Joys we will Share over There.

 

The little I’ve done while here I roam

To merit this wonderful Home.

If can hear, “Well done my child you tried”

Then Oh! Then I’ll be Satisfied.
