The attached image is a copy of the family bible record of William J "Big Sandy" Wallen (1816-1886). The original bible is currently in the possession of Joe E. Wallen of Johnson City, Tennessee, who is Big Sandy Wallen's second great-grandson.

According to Joe Wallen, the original bible contains an 1875 copyright. Big Sandy gave the bible to his son Joseph B. ("J. B.") Wallen, who was a minister, or "Elder," in the Primitive Baptist Church. He rode a circuit and tended several churches in eastern Tennessee and southwest Virginia, carrying the Bible on the back of his horse while making his circuit. After J. B. Wallen's death in 1912, the bible passed down to his youngest son, Joseph Loyd Wallen, who gave it to his only surviving son when he was elderly. That son was named Boyd E. Wallen, who gave the bible to Joe.
