Bible of W.T.Prince. Transcribed from photographed pages made at home of Edward Marshall Prince, Camden, TN 1993. EM Prince called this the Malin Family bible. It belonged to Frances (Prince) Malin a daughter of WT Prince. Frances and her husband Peony raised EM Prince after his mother died. Entries up until 1918 appear in the same ink and a similar hand, suggesting the entries may all have been made at a similar time.

William Thomas "Billie" Prince and his family lived in Chaseville, Benton County, Tennessee where Billie ran a general store and postoffice. Chaseville no longer exists. The nearest existing town is Holladay, (formerly Mt.Carmel) Tennessee. The area is still very rural. It is located near the Tennessee River, the Natchez Trace and the borders of Carroll County and Decatur County.
