1839 Seibert Family Bible For Pennsylvania Amish Family

This family bible is from Lancaster, PA according to the eBay seller and shows the family name of SEIBERT (looks sort of like "Seifert" to me, but that may be because of the handwriting).  The names visible indicate this german language bible once belonged to Anna Seibert, with other names such as Alice, Franklin George, Solomon. Looking online, there is a Pennsylvania family with these names listed on the 1880 census:

Lowhill, Lehigh, Pennsylvania
Solomon Seibert, a farmer age 54 (born 1826), born PA (parents both born PA)
Maria, wife, born 1830
children Alice and Frank.

Obviously more details would be needed to confirm whether or not these Seiberts are the ones from the bible, but if you would like to have a look at the family bible (published 1839 in Philadelphia), the eBay item number is 280482495542.
