1915-19           Bellefonte

1919                open transfer, page 61

 

Note: The March 19, 1919, Harrisburg Telegraph, page 2, reported that the MacLeod family would continue to reside in Bellefonte and “Mr. MacLeod will engage in church extension work.”  It appears, however, that T.H. MacLeod associated with the Presbyterian Church in the Washington DC area.  The June 29, 1923, Harrisburg Telegraph reports that “Miss Puera B. Robison spent Monday with the Rev. and Mrs. T. H. MacLeod, in Washington on her way to Higgins, N. C, where she will spend the summer .doing church and community work under the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions.”  Puera Robison of Liverpool was one of the first females ordained in the Methodist Episcopal Church (in the late 1920’s) and worked as a deaconess and was granted a local preacher’s license – but she never served a church.

Note:  In October 1890, George B. McKee left the United Brethren Church and preached to an overflow crowd in the Baptist Church on “Why I Became a Baptist.”  He and his wife were baptized by immersion, and he began a career as a Baptist preacher.  An article, including the full text of sermon, appears in the 10/9/1890 local Tyrone newspaper.  Mrs. McKee is the daughter of Lewis A. Wickey.  A biographical sketch of George B. McKee is given in Hain’s 1922 History of Perry County, page 826 – which erroneously gives the death year as 1921(as 1920 year comes from the September 1920 Illinois Baptist Bulletin).
