Family Bible – Haight/Fite (Schuyler Co., New York)

I bought this small Bible on eBay last year.  I would love to return it to the family.
 
The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  London: Oxford University Press, undated.  The book contains the New Testament and the Psalms.  It measures approximately 10 cm x 7 cm x 2 cm.  Inside the front cover is written "Charles Haight" and "1908".  "Charles Haight" is scribbled over, and the initials "M J H" and the name "Mary Jane" and date "1908" — apparently in a child’s handwriting — are written.
 
The following entries are handwritten on the blank pages in the back:
 
Helen Mae Fite
Born April 24, 1906

Charles Nathan Haight
Born Aug. 9, 1900
