Description

Silently They Stand by Jennie H. Colton pub. 1966 by the DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County This pamphlet is a collection of stories of the churches that now stand empty and silent after years of a passing parade of families and pastors who worshipped there from the very beginning of the settlement of our town. Only six families were in the area when the first Asbury Chapel was built. It is also a story of Asbury Cemetery where many of the original families of the town and descendants of these families now lie under the shade of the pine trees. These stories have been compiled from collections authored by Evelyn Field, Susan Haring, Alice Bristol, Isabel Parish, and Katherine Payne. Also from newspaper clippings, minutes of meetings and from my own collection. The North Lansing history was written by Mrs. Kenneth Tarbell, and the Myers story was told me by Laura Darling and Veda Holden. p 1. Asbury Methodist Church p. 12 Asbury Cemetery p. 16 Ludlowvilled Methodist Church p. 21 North Lansing Church p. 23 Myers Methodist Church p. 24 Lansing Methodism
