Well, that's it. Where I put the -------- I left out mini sermons etc.
I only typed that part which referred to people in the congregation.
I hope this helps you. At least it gives a time and a place where these people were.My family in Michigan were Bugbee, Taylor, Aldrich, and somehow the Eddy family (I think they were cousinsof my g. grandmother, some of them came out to California together) My G.G. Grandparents, Daniel and Sylvia(Aldrich) Bugbee and Alexander and Anna (Bassett) Taylor remained in Hudson and died there. Someday I hopeto find out more about them. I am glad I could share this with you. If you should ever hear of anyoneresearching these lines I would appreciate knowing about it.   Sincerely, Barbara Robinson
