A View from the Steeple

Stone Church is proud to announce the publication of A View from the Steeple, written by Marjorie (Midge) Bakos, one of the Church’s long-time members.

Midge, a direct descendant of one of the earliest of area settlers, tells how she developed her interest in historical research by assisting the former Stone Church secretary, Peggy Weldon, in fulfilling requests for dates of baptism, marriage etc.  As she recounted, “One particular morning while on such a search, I came upon the name Zebulon Peck who was a deacon in the early church from 1801 to 1808, ten years after the founding of the church in 1791. Oh my! It dawned on me that my grandmother had tried to tell me several times that he was my g-g-g-g-g-g-grandfather from Bristol, CT…. Now the pieces of the puzzle began to fit together and I looked through more material. I had papers and books everywhere….”
