Bullet3.gif (148 bytes) I recently received this bible record from the DAR file records on Luke Standefer. I have transcribed and noted when entries were difficult to read.  The page is very difficult to read.  Wesley Burdine was the husband of Sarah Standefer, daughter of Luke and Mary Ann Price Standefer.  *Virginia Bible Records, pub 1987, indicates that the Burdine Bible was own by Mrs. Edwin M. Stander of Memphis, TN.
