This weeks document highlights a charter for a UB Church to be founded at Marvin in French Creek, NY. Dated March 20th, 1897 it was found among documents given to my grandmother from her father’s (Albert Bayle) house. It shows Isaac Garfield as a Trustee and lists four family members as donors: Isaac Garfield (son of George Garfield), Henry Seldon Garfield (son of Isaac Garfield), Samuel K Bayle and William F. Bayle (son of Samuel K Bayle). The church at Marvin was never built according to Historians in Clymer and French Creek, NY. No church structure stands in the location mentioned today.
