A long succession of godly and able men have filled the pul-
pit of the old church since the days of "Priest Kent," and six of
them rest in the old cemetery near by. The old Sears' Burying
Ground, so called because it lies adjacent to the farm and home-
stead of the late Archibald Sears, was given by Frederick Phil-
ipse for burial purposes. Here lie the early settlers: Crosbys
Sears, Paddocks, Fosters, Bangs, Gage and Halls, all among those
who planted this little colony in "N. Y. Province."

Many of the inscriptions are becoming illegible and the stones
are broken or prostrate. Church and cemetery are in these later
days, suffering from neglect and the inability of the little band
that remain to keep the premises in order and maintain regular
services in the old church.

Rev. Edward Allen, the last pastor, died July 5, 1900 and
since then there have been many to say: "close the church,"
but it would be better that some whose forefathers founded this
rural church, should make it possible that its doors should never
be closed. Some of the old stones are broken, and all are be-
coming defaced by time; it has been only by the most untiring
patience that many of the following inscriptions have been
transcribed:
