--- The Larkin Chew Johnston Family Bible is still in existence today. This Bible was printed in 1605. I have the cliff notes for what is written in it. On the inside cover Larkin wrote "This book was given by my father William Johnston to Larkin Johnston."

Inside the back cover of the book William Johnston wrote "Wm Johnston was born December 1, 1697, it being on a Tuesday. This book---L3:3:3 currency for Wm Johnston." His signature appears below these two lines.
