APPENDIX.

CHRIST CHURCH, QUAKER'S FARM*

The following record indicates the commencement of the work for the erection of the church edifice:

"Oct. 11, 1811.

We Quaker's Farm people have begun to build a church, and I, Cyrus Perry, drew the first stick of timber, 64 feet long." Mr. William DeForest relates that when he went to Quaker's Farm as an apprentice to Tomlinson and Bassett in Oct, 1812, the carpenters were hewing the timber for the church.

The building committee were David Tomlinson, Nathaniel Wooster and Wells Judson; the last being treasurer. The subscriptions were due Jan. 1, 1813. The principal contributors, and those most active in personal influence, were members of the congregation of St. Peter's church at Oxford, then under the care of the Rev Dr. Mansfield; the most liberal of these being David Tomlinson and his wife Laura, Wells Judson. Nathaniel Wooster and Russell Nichols. Many others however, contributed jifccording to their ability and the need.

Nathaniel Wooster was perhaps the most decided and best informed churchman among the contributors; and gave his influence to the more churchly character of the building, as well as to its final consummation, as a regularly constituted Episcopal church.

The architect and builder of the church was George Boultof Southford, a gentleman of extraordinary skill in the art of building.

The Rev. Aaron Humphrey, the first minister of the church at Quaker's Farm, came to it in the fall of 1814, the house of worship having been previously finished. He came from Gardiner, Me., where he had ministered some time to the Episcopal congregation in that place. In the spring of 1816. he accepted the charge of St. Peter's of Oxford in connection wath Christ church at Quaker's Farm, which was then denominated a chapel, when he made his residence at Oxford, and in this relation he continued until 1819. when he accepted the appointment by the Diocesan convention of itinerant missionary in New Haven county. The church of Quaker's Farm was consecrated by Bishop Hobart, Sept. 3, 1817. After the retirement of Mr. Humphrey, temporary services were supplied by the Rev. Sturgis Gilbert, Rev. Chauncey Prindle, Rev. Nathaniel Garfield, Rev. Dr. Bronson, but perhaps more efficiently by Rev. Dr. Burhans of Newtown.

In 1826 a movement was made for the incorporation of the church at Quaker's Farm as a separate parish, which was accomplished, and

by the agreement with St. Peter's this church received one-third of the fund then possessed, amounting to $660. A legacy was received in 1846 from the estate of Mrs. Ruth Tyrrel of Oxford of $200, and a subsequent legacy from the estate of Ira Hawkins of Quaker's Farm of $100.

The first stove for warming the church was presented by Rev. Ashbel Baldwin, who had charge of the parish from 1828 to 1834. The first bell was a failure; the second cast by the celebrated founder, G. Ford of New York, in 1836, was procured by subscription, weighing six hundred pounds During the interval between 1834 and 1871 the parish was supplied by several clergymen, sometimes alone and sometimes in connection with St. Peter's; the difficulty being always the same -- the want of adequate support Since 1875 the church has revived, the building has been repaired, and movements have been inaugurated which seem to assure a permanent basis for future prosperity.

And sweetly whispers there we meet again.

Enamored more as remembrance swells
With many a proof of recollected love
Together down they sink in social sleep
Together freed their gentle spirits fly
To scenes where love and bliss immortal reign.

She is not here. 'Tis but her veil of clay
That moulders into dust beneath this stone
Mary herself in ralms of fadeless glory
Has put a robe of fadeless glory on
This monumental urn is not designed
To tell of beauties withering in the tomb
Her brightest charms were centered in a mind
Which still prevail and will forever bloom
Her conscious soul
Allied to angels hails the glorious change
And joins the blest societies above
In all the freshness of imortal youth
There is a world of bliss hereafter else
Why are the bad above the good beneath
The green grass of the grave.

When silent death thy suffering clos'd
No pain nor anguish interven'd
But every feature seemd compos'd
Then rest in peace this hallowd spot
Thy dust shall never be forgot
Wile oft affection's tear shall lave
Upon they low and silent grave.
