            Thomas Gallaway was born in 1743 in Ireland, and died March 9, 1789 in Cambridge, Washington County, New York. The information from his age and death came from his gravestone, and his birth location was reported as Ireland in the History of Lenawee County, Michigan.   There is some speculation though he may have been from Scotland.   The name Galaway, Galloway, and Galway are common names in both countries and the family spelling is seen in many of these forms here and during research.

            Mary Mc Auley was born, it is believed, in Ireland and married there to Thomas before they came to America.   Mary was born in 1747.   She died in Jackson, Washington Co, NY and is most likely buried in Old Turnpike Cemetery, Cambridge NY.   No headstone or record has been located for her at this time.   There is, however, a broken shale stone next to Thomas’ grave which may be Mary’s.

            There is little known about Thomas, but we believe he was a man of education, a teacher, (as discussed in the History of Lenawee County, Michigan,) and a Patriot of the Revolution.   Information gathered on Thomas comes primarily from the Histories of Lenawee County, Michigan and Washington County, New York.

       The following is from The History Of Lenawee County, Michigan and discusses Thomas and Mary in an article about his grandson Stephen Gallaway: “Thomas Gallaway, a native of Ire­land, a man of considerable education and a teacher by profession who came to the United States after his marriage and settled in Washington County N.Y. where he died at an advanced age.”    

       For reasons unknown, Thomas and Mary settled in Cambridge New York.   Then, part of Albany County, it can be only surmised that they went there due to the high population of Irish and Scottish living in the area at the time.   Perhaps though, other family members lived in the vicinity.   This has recently become more possibly the reason as I have discovered families with the name McAuley, which was Mary’s maiden name.   This, along with Thomas’ grave location lends some credibility to the fact, in that Thomas is buried in row with a group of McAuley’s   

            From The History of Washington County, page 252 “When first erected, Cambridge included its present territory the towns of Jackson and White Creek, and part of Vermont, and was within the jurisdiction of the county of Albany. By the act of dividing the county of Albany into districts, passed on the 12th of March, 1772, it was enacted that all that part of Albany county lying north of Schaghticoke and east of Saratoga be what was then called a district, and named Cambridge, and it was thereby enabled to elect certain officers to manage its local affairs, and a supervisor to act in county affairs with those of the other districts.”   Until 1791, Cambridge was a part of Albany County.   Through political subdivision in 1791, Cambridge became part of the newly formed Washington County. 

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

            The map on the left below shows the districts of Albany County in 1784.   Jackson and White Creek were brought in, in1815.    The map on the right is a map from 2003 of the area.

 

 

 

 

            Thomas Gallaway is listed in the History of Washington County, New York page 255 on the record of the Annual Town Meeting of Cambridge as follows:                                                                         

            “The meeting for 1777 was held at Captain John Wood's, ‘by order of Congress,' first Tuesday in April.  John Younglove, moderator;  Edmund Wells, Jr., town clerk,  John Younglove, supervisor; Ebenezer Allen, James Cowden, Edward Rigg,, Asa Flint, Joseph Younglove, Elisha Allen, assessors; Edmund Wells, Jr., treasurer, Henry Smith, John McKellip, James Green, Samuel Hodges, Joseph Wells, Elisha Golden, overseers of 'the poor; Philip Van Ness, collector; David Slarrow, Benjamin Wells, constables; Hartman Van Dusen, Asa Flint, Job Allen, James Morrison, Edmund Wells, Morgan Powell, Josiah Rathbone, Samuel Bell, Simeon Berry, Oliver Selfridge, Moses Cowen, Thomas Ashton, Andrew Thompson, Daniel Heath, Thomas McClaughrey, Samuel Dennis, overseers of the roads; Joseph Wells,  Gershom Woodworth, Samuel Hodges, Nathaniel Lucas, fence-viewers; Isaac Perine, Abraham Wright, John Preston, Benjamin Tiffany, Joseph Younglove, Alexander Skelly, John Morrison, Jr., Robert Christie, John Mushat, Thomas Galloway, firemasters: Job Green, James Cowan poundmasters; Joseph Younglove, Edmund Wells, David Preston, William Cooper, Robert Gilmore, road commissioners.

“Voted, That hounds shall not be allowed to run.”

“Voted, That hogs shall run with lawful yokes.”

“The district met at James Cowan's on the first Tuesday in May, agreeable to charter, and confirmed the above proceedings, and likewise voted that the annual meeting shall be liable for the, future at the present dwelling house of James Cowan, and that the inhabitants shall work on the roads as ordered last season.”

            It is documented that Thomas was a Patriot of the Revolution as he is shown with the 16th Regiment, Albany County Militia serving under Col. Van Woert and Captain Brown.   Thomas served in 1779 and 1780 as evidenced by the below information.   This is the first direct documentation of Thomas in this country.

            The Fort Klock Historic Restoration Indian Castle Church Documents relating to The Colonial History of the State of New York and was Edited by Berthold, Fernow Volume XV. State Archives, Vol. I Albany, N.Y.  Wood Parsons and Company, Printers, 1887.  In the document it lists Thomas Galloway as a private assigned to Col. Van Woert’s Company.   Also, Thomas is listed as a member of the 16th Regiment, Albany County Militia as an enlisted man. The document shown here indicates he was active during 1779 and 1780 and that his pay was transferred to Thomas Witsids in the amount of L 1-14-0.

            This name Witsids (Whitesides) comes up from time to time in the related Gallaway families, especially in Cambridge.

            Thomas Whitesides was the son of Phineas Whitesides and Ann Couper (Cooper).   Thomas’ father was born in County Tyrone, Ireland on January 31, 1716.  He married Ann Couper who was born in Pennsylvania January 5, 1752 in Middle Octorar, Pennsylvania.   Phineas died April 1, 1793 in Cambridge, Washington County, New York.   Ann was born in Ireland also in 1731 and died in Cambridge, Washington County, New York.   Records indicate they may have had 8 children, one of them being Thomas.    It appears Phineas was one well thought of and respected by the discussions in records of that era.   He was a true patriot of the Revolution and a large monument was erected at his graves site.   Phineas was a member of the state assembly 1779-1780. He was an influential and important member of the area and state for his time.    His remains as well as those of his wife and several family members are buried at the Whiteside Church and Cemetery in Washington County, New York.

                                                                           The graves of Ann and Phineas Whiteside

 

 

 

            The 16th Regiment, Albany Militia, which Thomas Gallaway was a member, was involved in a number of conflicts.   These were due in large part based on the geographical location in New York.    Here is listed information about their activities:

 

Albany Committee Chamber
June 7, 1776

 

            The Committee of Cambridge requested fifty pounds of powder and a proportion of lead to be delivered to Coll. Lewis Van-Woerdt. Resolved that twenty pounds of gun powder be delivered to Lewis Van Woerdt and Phineas Whiteside, and that they be accountable for the same, and return what remains after the exploit to the District Committee or such person as they shall appoint."

            The  following is a copy of a portion of a letter to Hon. Abram Ten Broeck, Brig. General of the Militia of the County of Albany, from Colonel Lewis Van Woert: 

            "The enemy seem determined to distress this part of the Country and without your immediate assisting, we shall be all obliged to fly." Dated 10/26/1780  1

 

            The following is a copy of a letter from Major General Schuyler to Colonel Van Woert and Mr. Edmund Willis (Wells?), chairman of the Committee of Cambridge, dated Fort Edward, July 12, 1777. This letter was produced at the trial of Major General Schuyler.

"Gentlemen,

            Your letter of the 10th instant I have received. The information that four or five hundred Indians were on their way to New-Perth (Salem) is totally groundless. There are not even any so high up Wood Creek as Fort Ann, where we have a large body of troops. If it was necessary to send troops to White Creek, I would most readily do it. My care shall be extended to every quarter, and if my country-men will support me with vigor and activity, we shall be able to prevent the enemy from penetrating much farther into the country; but if they suffer their spirits to sink, and meanly despond, the worst of consequences are to be apprehended.

            I am informed that several people, for-getting the duty they owe their Country, discourage the good inhabitants, and are ready to take protection from the enemy. Any that have made such declarations, I would advise to have immediately secured and sent prisoner to Albany. 

            The enemy's view, in offering protection, is only to prevent the inhabitants from acting spiritedly; to get into the country, and, when once there, to plunder indiscriminately, as well those that may have relied on their promises, as those that have gloriously stepped forth for the defense of their country, and those blessings which they can only enjoy by having that country free: Let every one therefore exert himself and all will go well.

                                                                                                            Maj. Gen. Schuyler."1

            After the end of the Revolutionary war, Thomas and Mary continued to live in Cambridge.  There is information they had five children before he died.  We have only been able to identify 2 at this point, William and John.  

            Thomas was buried in the Old Turnpike Cemetery just outside of Cambridge Village.

Thomas’ Gravestone

 

              

                                                        It Reads:

Revolutionary War

 IN MEMORY OF

        Thomas Gallaway Who

Died March the 9th

1785 In The 42nd

Year  of His Age

 

            The Old Turnpike Cemetery is historical in that it was one the first organized burial grounds in the Cambridge, New York area.

            Page 257 History of Washington County, New York published in 1874:    “…William Smith, one of the original owners of the Cambridge patent, gave a lot of land of about one hundred and twenty acres to encourage the object, on which was erected a house of worship, and a parsonage house for their minister.  According to the custom to which they had been bred, they wished for a burying ground near their place of public worship, which in those times was often called “the church-yard.”   Accordingly on the south side of this glebe, so-called, on the west side of the highway, and some sixty rods south of the church, a parcel of ground was selected for this purpose, and is the same ground which has been called for a long time “the old grave yard on the turnpike,” and is about a half a mile south of the Cambridge Washington Academy, and is supposed to be the oldest public burial lot in the original township. 

            It is it matter of tradition that the first persons interred was a young man who died of small pox, in a log house near the residence of the late Robert Wilcox, and that Mr., Wells assist in carrying the body through the woods to the “glebe” lot, about 1775.  In connection with this event, according to tradition, there was no saw mill in Cambridge, and no boards were to be had for a coffin, and it was thought too indecent to split out plank from a tree for the purpose, and that the late Mr. James Cowden, step father of Colonel Edward Long, now living, went to Pittstown, Rennselaer Co., and obtained a coffin made, excepting the putting together, and brought it to Cambridge on horseback  upon the pummel of his saddle, which was the first coffin used in the said” old grave-yard.  How great the contrast between that and the present time, when coffins are used of the best material and finest finish, conveyed in a hearse of corresponding excellence.  The "old grave-yard" was considered common ground, free and open for the use of all classes.  Within the memory of' some who still survive, there was but here and there a scattering grave;  that for several years the deceased for eight or ten miles around, and especially of Scottish and Irish, were brought o this yard for interment.”

            In regards to Thomas’ burial site, it was interesting to note that he is buried in a row of a family of McAuley’s, which was Mary, his wife’s maiden name.

                          1 free white males under 16 years

                          1 free white females including heads of families

Text of the letter to Uriah and Phebe Gripman

 

                                                                                                Cambridge 3 of 2 Mo 1823

Dear Brother and sister with pleasure I embrace the opportunity of writing these few lines to you hoping they may find you all in perfect health both in body and mind  I have had my health pretty much of the time since I saw you as to body but great afflictions hath encompassed my mind since that time, my life at present seems more deprived of earthly comfort yet my hope is in the Lord, I hope I may have strength afforded me always to rest on the arm and power of Jehovah where we only can have trust and perminant ever ending happiness.   Worldly comfort is a fleeting as the noon tide which perhaps now is and the right hour will be vanished intirely out of our sight.   But the love of the Lord endureth for ever no mothes can eat holes therein nor rust can waist it away this is a true an everlasting Sabath of eternal rest for them that puts their trust in him alone.  Oh then let us put our hole trust in him and him alone is the ardent desire of my sole – I think I new not be very particular in writing much about our friends in this place as I expect Harvey will take you news only mention that it is a general time of health  Thankful is much as she was when you ware here -  I think it is most probable that Samuel Brown will be moved to that country before this comes to your hands and I want you to go to see them and my little babe which Hannah will have with her and let them know that I am well and send my love to them give my love to all your family.   I add no more at present but remains your loving brother with respect.

    Dr. Stephen Mattoon                                                                                      Mary Lourie

 

From 1870 to 1886, Dr. Stephen Mattoon served as first President of Johnson C. Smith University. He was born May 5, 1816 in Champion, New York. At the age of 17, Dr. Mattoon publicly professed his faith in Christ, and pursued his calling as a minister of the gospel.  In 1842, he graduated from Union College and from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1846.  He was ordained as an evangelist on February 11, 1846 by the Presbytery of Troy.

Dr. Mattoon was a missionary in Siam, Bangkok (Thailand) for 20 years.  As a missionary he was as an interpreter to the King of Siam and organized the first Presbyterian Church of Siam. While in Cambodia, he started The Boys’ School in Bangkok and translated the New Testament into Siamese.

Dr. Mattoon married Mary Lourie. The Mattoons adopted two children from Siam, Ester and Mary; and had two biological children, Emma Williams and George Lourie.

Mrs. Mattoon aided her husband with his work as a missionary and president of Johnson C. Smith University by teaching bible classes and by performing other humanitarian duties.

As President of Johnson C. Smith University, Dr. Mattoon laid the foundation for the school as a prestigious and stable institution.  During his presidency, he restructured and expanded the curriculum, increased the acreage of the campus, and amended the school charter to change the name of the institute to Biddle University.

Credit to Inez Moore Parker Archives and Research Center at Johnson C. Smith University, Charlotte, North Carolina.

“The first president of Biddle Memorial Institute was, like those who organized the movement, a white man. Dr. Stephen Mattoon, a Presbyterian minister from the North, was selected for the position because of his understanding of races other than his own gained while serving as a missionary to Siam. Dr. Mattoon served from 1870 until 1884, during which time his wife taught at Charlotte Female Institute. Dr. and Mrs. Mattoon had two daughters, both born in Bangkok. Mary remained single, but Emma married Weddington Evans Thomas in the First Presbyterian Church of Charlotte and became the mother of Norman Mattoon Thomas. Norman Thomas, minister and author, was the nominee of the Socialist party in many presidential elections. Dr. Mattoon and his wife were among the first to be buried in Charlotte's Elmwood Cemetery - Mrs. Mattoon in 1885 and Dr. Mattoon four years later.

While Dr. Mattoon was president, the name Biddle Memorial Institute was changed to Biddle University and, on March 1, 1923, the name was again changed, to Johnson C. Smith University in recognition of generous gifts by Mrs. Jane Berry Smith in honor of her husband.”

HON. JAMES I. LOURIE.

        The ancestors of Judge Lourie all came to this country from Scotland and the north of Ireland.   They were among the earliest settlers of the "old town of Cambridge."  James Irvine, his maternal grandfather, was the first supervisor of Jackson, and was for many years a prominent man in the public affairs of that part of the country.

          His father, George Lourie, was an elder in Dr. Bullion's church -now Rev. Henry Gordon's-for more than half a century, and was an officer of the Cambridge regiment in the War of 1812 and after­wards.

          His brother, Thomas B. Lourie, owns and occupies the farm which has been in the possession of the family since some time before the Revolution.

          Judge Lourie was born in the town of Jackson, on the 39th day of September, 1810. In the fall of 1828 he entered the Cambridge Academy, under Rev. Nathaniel S. Prime and Samuel Irenens Prine, and in four years from that time graduated and received his diploma at Union College. For several years he was principal of the Union Village Academy, of which he was the founder, having commenced with a single scholar, who came with him from Cambridge. The school became known far and wide, and its exhibitions and examina­tions were attended by multitudes.

          In 1840 he married Mary II. Robinson, daughter of General Henry Robinson, of Bennington, Vt. She was loved by all those around her, and very highly esteemed and respected by the whole community in which she resided. During the war she was the ladies' agent for this-county of the Sanitary Commission.

          After studying law in the office of Hon. Charles F. Ingalls, Judge Lourie was admitted to the bar as attorney in 1844, and about a year and a half afterwards, by special favor of the Supreme Court, he re­ceived his diploma as counselor. A short time previous to this he was nominated by Governor Silas Wright as one of the judges of common pleas for this county, and was unanimously confirmed by the Senate. For a time he was a partner in Judge Ingall's office, under the firm­ name of Ingalls, Lourie and Ingalls.    In 1854 he was elected member of Assembly for the First district of this county.  His principal op­ponent was both a Democrat and Know-Nothing. Many of the Democrats voted for Judge Lourie, and he was elected by over six hundred majority.  In the Legislature he earnestly advocated tem­perance, and opposed with much success fraudulent claims and dis­honest schemes of every kind.  At the joint caucus of the two houses to decide on the propriety of forming the Republican party, he advocated that measure with much energy, and it was carried by a large majority.  He has ever since been a Republican in theory and in practice, and supported the war enthusiastically and with all his powers. He has always spoken publicly in presidential years.  In 1856 he went to Brooklyn, retaining his pleasant residence in Union Village.  It is said that in his very active practice in that city he never lost a case before a jury.  He returned to Union Village in 1801.

      He was elected surrogate of this county in 1808 by a majority among the largest in the county, and performed its duties for the term of four years.   He appointed special terms once in each month at Argyle and Salem, and established the practice of publishing the proceedings of the surrogate's court in the county papers.           Universal satisfaction was the result of his decisions and administration of the office.

     For the past nine years, Edmund H. Gibson, from Poultney, Vt., has been his partner, under the firm-name of Laurie & Gibson. The business of the firm has always been large, and is still increasing and successful. Of late, Judge Lourie has written and delivered in various places in the county three historical lectures, which have been much applauded. The subjects are “Burgoyne's Campaign," "John Paul Jones," and "King Henry the Eighth and the Episcopal Church," each exhibiting very extensive research and a general knowledge of history. He is, in fact, one of the most extensively read men in this region of country.

     As an educator, Judge Laurie was peculiarly qualified; he not only took a deep interest in education, but was one of the few decidedly practical and successful teachers. Courteous in manner and indefati­gable in whatever he undertook he endeared himself to his pupils; he seemed to know just how to manage an institution of learning. By his familiarity and kindness he secured the confidence of his students, and, by his unobtrusive dignity of manner, commanded their respect.       A number of the distinguished men of this State were his scholars.

      As a lawyer he has become a leading member of the profession in this county. Deeply and accurately read in the law, he sways a jury with great power.  He is a safe and candid adviser, being more anxious that men should avoid rather than engage in litigation.   His clients' real good has been his characteristic.

As a man of undoubted integrity, none stand superior to Mr. Lourie. His high-toned, moral sense, which ever moves and tempers big acts, is known to all acquainted with him, either in person or by reputation. Not only is Mr. Lourie possessed of those qualities which so distinguish the good citizen and neighbor, and which so adorn the home life, but, combined with these, a degree of talent and power of conversation which are adornments in themselves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THOMAS B. LOURIE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thomas B. Lourie was born in the Town of Jackson at the homestead where he now resides, on the 20th of April, 1828.  Alexander Lourie, his grandfather came from Scotland in 1770, and settled first in Orange County, whence he removed to that part of the old town of Cambridge now included in Jackson 1792.   He married in Scotland a Miss McDonal and had two sons who arrived at maturity, one of whom was George Lourie the father of the subject of this notice.  George Lourie was born Jan. 11, 1786 and married for his first wife Mary W. Irvine, Dec. 28. 1809, by whom he had five children. He afterwards married .Jennett Beveridge daughter of Rev. Thomas Beveridge, who was the founder and first pastor of what is now the United Presbyterian church of Coila.   By this latter marriage he had five children, two of whom died young. Those who reached maturity were Anna Maria, Thomas R., the subject of this sketch, and Jennett, now Mrs. Dr, John Ashton, of Cambridge.

His maternal grandfather, Rev. Thomas Beveridge came from Scotland in 1784, and was sent by the presbytery of Philadelphia to preach in this section of northern New York. He established the second Associated Presbyterian church in this vicinity, viz, the present United Presbyterian church of Coila of which Rev. Henry Gordon is pastor.  He preached extensively, and organized most of what were then called the Associated Presbyterian churches of this county, but afterwards united with the Reformed churches, constituting the United Presbyterian church.

Rev. Mr. Beveridge married Jennett Featheringame, whose mother's maiden name was Jennett Lourie. She married a Beveridge for her first husband, and for her second a Featheringame and emigrated from Scotland with her son and daughter by the first marriage. Andrew and Anna Beveridge, and her daughter by the second marriage, Jennett Featheringame, 1774. She became the wife of Rev. Thomas Beveridge and the grandmother of Mr. Lourie as above stated.  

The Louires and the Beveridges are well-known families in this county Thomas B. Louire is a brother of Judge James I. Lourie of Greenwich formerly judge of the circuit court. Of the latter family ex-Governor Beveridge, of Illinois is a representative, and was born in the town of Hebron in this county.

            Thomas B. Lourie was married in 1855 to Sarah Jane Stevenson daughter of Hon. John Stevenson, of Cambridge.  He has devoted himself to the occupation of farmer, and mixed little in politics, although a man of decided opinions and an ardent Republican since the organization of that party.  He has served his town twice in the board of supervisors, and been the county superintendent of the poor for the past ten years.

     The Beveridge name is mentioned a number of times in the History of Washington County, New York.    The Reverend Brevridge, while he is someone who was on the fringe of our family by marriage, he was most influential in the history of religion within the Cambridge New York region.  Because of this I have included him and the below information for your reading.

THE UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CONGREGATION OF CAMBRIDGE

The organization of this body closely followed the early settlements in Salem and Cambridge. It is probable that the Rev. Thomas Clark preached to the settlers in the fall of 1765, and afterwards at occasional intervals, until his removal to the south in 1780.         In 1765, a petition was forwarded to the synod of the Secession Church of Scotland, requesting the service", of a preacher.  In response, Rev. David Telfair came to the New World, and Visited Cambridge, but did not remain to form a congregation. Failing in their efforts to secure it minister from the Scotch synod, the associate presbytery of Pennsylvania wits next verbally petitioned.       In response thereto, Dr. Clark was instructed. on the 19th day of April, 1769, to organize a congregation at Cambridge. It is altogether probable that, this was done, as, soon after, a glebe lot was donated for a building site by William Smith, one of the original Cambridge patentees. On the northern portion of this a house of worship was begun in 1775, or earlier, but which was not finished until after the treaty of peace, in l783.  The building stood about sixty rods north of the old grave-yard, and was most likely used, before its completion for occasional meetings. After the war many settlers, came to Cambridge, and the desire for regular services now became so strong that it was resolved to petition the presbytery of Pennsylvania in person.    This mission was undertaken, in the summer of 1784, by a devout Irish woman, Widow Nancy Hinsdale, who belonged to Dr. Clark's Salem congregation. Pilgrim-like, with a bundle of clothing and provisions, she began and completed the toilsome journey, walking all the way to Philadelphia.        Fortunately, the presbytery, at that time, composed of but two ministers, had convened to deliberate what should be done with the Rev. Thomas Beveridge, who had just arrived front Ireland, with a view to preach in America.  The petition was most opportune, and Mr. Beveridge was at once appointed to Cambridge, where he arrived in the fall of 1784.         His labors were followed. Jan. 5, 1785, by the legal organization of the new body as the “Protestant Presbyterian Congregation of Cambridge."   The trustees chosen were Josiah Dewey, John Morrison, Edmund Wells, Phineas Whiteside, John Younglove, James Ashton, John McClung, John Welsh, and Joseph Wells.  Edmund Wells was chosen president; John McClung, clerk; and Edmund Wells, Jr., collector. This board secured a deed for the glebe lot, and made pro­vision for its future disposition.

          Unfortunately the troubles which were at that time agitating the Presbyterian churches also affected the Cambridge congregation in so pronounced a manner, that it resulted in the withdrawal of a portion of the members adhering to Mr. Beveridge, who belonged to the “Burghers."            This led to the temporary cessation of' services, the locking up of the meeting-house, and the formation of a new society, which is at present known as “The United Presbyterian Church of Coila”. The claims of the Beveridge and anti­-Beveridge parties to the ownership of the meeting-house were adjusted, after a great deal of hard feeling on the 5th of' May 1786 by a board of arbitration, which decided that the Beveridge party should be paid in equity for what it had contributed towards the erection of the house.

“THE UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF COILA”

       This body originated from and was in reality a part of the old “Protestant Presbyterian Congregation of Cambridge.” It was that portion which adhered to Rev. Thos. Beveridge in the controversy between the “Burgher” and “Anti-Burgher” elements Until the spring of' 1786 the history of the two bodies are identical and are detailed in the sketch of the present “United Presbyterian Congregation of Cambridge." Both churches had the same humble beginning and any fact bearing upon the early history of' the original body will prove or equal interest to the members of both churches.     From an old church book we note the observance of one of the ordinances, the holy communion as it gives the names of those composing the original body at that time.

     The first Lord's Supper was celebrated Aug. 13, 1785 before the division of the congregation.  This took place in the meeting-house on the turnpike, near the old grave­yard.  At this communion, including the minister, seventy­-eight persons commemorated the love of a crucified Redeemer. Their descendants would no doubt like to read the names of those to whom they are so much indebted. They are as follows: Minister Rev. Thomas Beveridge; Elders, Alexander Skellie James Edie, James Rolls, James Small, and William McAuley ; Members Alexander Cowan, William Skellie John Skellie, Mrs. Skellie, William Edie, Mrs. Edie, Mrs. Rollo, David French, Mrs. McKie, Mrs. Cowan, Mrs. French, Jonathan French, Peter McGill, Sr., Peter McGill, Jr., Mrs. McGill, Mary McGill,, Robert Sommers, Janet Sommers, William Edgar, Hcnry Crawford, John Blair Sr.,  John Blair Jr.,  Mrs. Blair, Mrs. Fortheringame, Janet Fotheringame,  Mrs. Groen, Mrs. Small, James McGeoch, Walter Bell, Mrs. Bell, Mrs,. Miller, Alexander Hill, Mrs. Hill, George Miller, Mrs. Miller. Alexander Frascr, William Recd, Mary Barnet, Jean Miller, Mrs. McAuley, Sr., Mrs. McAuley Jr.  Mrs. Grcen, William Mushet, David Mushet, Mrs. Mushet, Elizabeth Robb, James Irvine, Sally Coulter,  Mrs. Boyd, Robert Weir, Mrs. Weir, George Easton, Mrs. Irvine (from New Perth), Robert, McClellan, James Thomp­son,  Ira. Thompson, Mrs. Mathews, Janet Thompson John Foster, James Foster, Jonah Foster, Mary Foster, Joseph -Nelson (from Black Creek), Andrew Beveridge (from the new city), James Hamilton (from  Argyle town), Duncan McArthur, Mrs. McArthur, John McKnight, John McNeil.

            Rev. Dr. Beveridge and his followers withdrawn from the original congregation proceeded with the organ­ization of the new society. which received the name of  The Associate Presbyterian Congregation of Cambridge.” In July, 1786, half the acre of ground was obtained from Jonathan French, on which was erected the famous yellow meeting house, Where, for years were given the, soundest and ablest expositions of' the Bible to the largest audiences in this part of the State. Summer's heat and winter's cold did not prevent the regular attendance of large numbers who often walked seven miles to attend the regular Sabbath services, which were never suspended.  It is said that in the first seventy years of the church not a single omis­sion occurred. There was preaching twice a day, which was listened to with devout attention in spite of the cold, ­the house was not warmed by fire then-or the sweltering heat of August days. Unaffected zeal and true piety abounded from pastor to humblest member there was no deviation from a purpose to do the right as it was re­vealed to them by their religion; and no  people were ever more rigid in the observance of the customs of' the church than the members of the "old yellow meeting-house" so­ciety.  

It is said that one of the old members forgot the announcement of the day of fasting on a certain Thursday, and engaged to melt some tar over the hearth-fire.  Twice he failed in his efforts; and, when on the third trial the tar took fire with a large blaze, the remembrance of

the last Sabbath's announcement came to mind. Throwing down the pot, he exclaimed, "It is no wonder the judgments of the Lord are upon me for neglecting his ordinance!"   It was too late for church then, but all household work was immediately suspended, the family was assembled, and the remaining hours of the day were spent in reading the Bible, singing psalms, and repeating the catechism. Such was the character of' the early members of a church whose influ­ence has always been a power in the community.

            On Sept. 10, 1789, Mr. Beveridge was permanently in­stalled as the first pastor of the church.  During his minis­try his labors were abundant and successful.  He preached in Argyle, near South Argyle, in Black creek, near West Hebron, in Florida, a township west of Schenectady, and in Putnam, and may, with truth, be said to have laid the foundation of all these congregations.  In June, 1798 he set out for Barnet, Vermont, to assist Mr. Goodwillie at his com­munion, where he contracted the disease that terminated in his death.  When the church here heard of his sickness they sent two of the elders, James Small and Robert Oliver, to render what assistance might be necessary, there, as on his return home.  These not coming as soon as the people here expected, they sent two others, who just reached Barnet as the, people were returning from the funeral. The remains of the first minister the in Vermont, over which the congre­gation erected a suitable memorial. There is still in the church one of Mr. Beveridge's serving as a link between the present acid the past. She is full of years and greatly respected, not only on account of the name she bears, but also on account of her many excellent social and moral virtues.  The congregation was not long vacant.   The death of Mr. Beveridge took place in July, 1798, and November 20 of the same year we have an account of' Rev. John Banks preaching, the second minister of the church.  The pastorate of Mr. Banks was not very pleasant.  In 1803, receiving a call to the church in Florida, N. Y., the presbytery dissolved the relationship. Afterwards he was called to the Walnut Street Church Phil­adelphia, where he preached and acted as professor in the theological seminary until he died, full of years and useful­ness.”

The Beveridge children were not the children of Rev. Thomas Beveridge.  The passage from Scotland to America took 11 weeks.  The opening of the war prevented them from entering Boston harbour.  They disembarked at Marblehead and walked to the region.  The reason for their trip to the region was to be near the preaching of Dr. Thomas Clark whom they were aquainted with in Ireland.
