Notes from Deborah Bay:
I'm not sure who currently has the Bible -- I think my uncle in Ohio.   My great great grandparents, Joseph Hutchison and Tobitha E. McCance, were married in Shelby Co, IN in 1861.  Apparently, Tobitha's name is spelled as "Tabitha McCanse" in the marriage record.  From the sketchy information I have on these families to date, I think Tobitha's mother was Elizabeth McCance.  I have a letter written to a great uncle of mine in 1949 by a C.W. Amos (Vitality Feed Store, New Palestine, IN), who said that "Tabitha's" mother was "Elizabeth McCanse" and that Elisabeth McCance had married his Grandfather Amos "for his second wife," which fits with what I found in the probate records on your [Shelby Co IN] web page.

Note from Deborah, July 2007:  I think I've figured out who they are. The John McCance listed is my ggg-grandfather; the rest of the McCance folks are his siblings. I've got a couple of records coming that might give me a link to their parents, and then I'll write up an update on the records to share. John McCance was the only one who settled in Shelby Co.; the family started in Hancock Co. (the township just north of Moral Twp.) and then many of the kids ended up in Stark Co., IL for various periods of time.  Anyway, when I get things sorted out a bit more I'll share an update for the McCance Bible records.
