Bible Pages for Thomas M. Thompson

OK Genealogists.  This one is for you!   The Committee on Lawrence County Civil War Soldiers Researchers ( ie, Flossie Price, Joyce Brunson, John King, Mike Neal, and Dan Scherer)  have almost completed all 1200+ biographies. In the process they have found many interesting stories.  They have also found valuable genealogy material in the pension files.  For example the three Bible Pages below were found in Thomas M. Thompson's file.  Since they appear to be the originals, and probably there were no copies made, this may just be the 'hammer' that knocks down some family researcher's brick wall.  If you know a Thompson or Buchanan family researcher, please pass this along.  (Enlarged copies can be purchased for $5.00 a page by contacting John King,
