UB Records: Rev. T. S. Bennett

05 Jul

I discovered another source of church information for one of my wife’s forbears, Rev. Truman S. Bennett. Almost two decades ago, our Conference of The United Methodist Church cleared out some of the extra copies of old reference books from the Archives and History collections. I bought this commemorative volume celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Erie Conference of the United Brethren In Christ Church in 1936 (which was when they merged with the Evangelical Association).

A couple months ago I discovered Truman was in the version of United Brethren church that formed part of the history of our present day United Methodist Church. As I began to search the Methodist history resources on my own shelves, I found this history complete with a picture of Truman AND his pastor/son Walter!!

These pictures are dated August 31, 1887.
