Commemorative Bible from Quincy Shumate

Gift from Quincy Shumate to Nathan Harrell Moran.
This small bible was given to Nathan Harrell Moran (Quincy has the name reversed) from his great uncle Quincy Shumate to commemorate Nathan's grandfather, Nathan M. Shumate.  The only reason I can come up with for presenting the bible at this time is because Nathan Moran graduated from Dresden High School in 1936 and it was a graduation gift.  Nathan Shumate died in 1899.
