The Last Three of the Charter Members

Mrs. Nancy BORNT, Roderick E. MARVIN, and Jasper BURGIN are the sole survivors of the sixteen persons who formed the original membership of the church.

Upon the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary there were eleven survivors, and most of them were present at its celebration. The fiftieth anniversary came Sunday, February 25, 1906; Jasper Burgin was the only one of the three present at the Sunday-morning service the other two not being able to attend on account of ill health.

Page 95

Mrs. Nancy BORNT was born in Schoharie, February 26, 1895. Mr. and Mrs. Bornt were living in Yager Hollow when the church was organized but for about twenty years their home has been on Maple street. Since Mr. Bornt's death in 1903, Mrs. Bornt has not been able to attend church; however, her former faithful attendance is not forgotten. Her beautiful Christian spirit is still manifest in the sweet patience with which she endures her pain, sorrow, and lonliness, trusting in her Saviour with an unswerving faith.

Roderick Emmons MARVIN was born in the town of Oneonta, June 14, 1831. He is the son of Deacon David Marvin, and father and son became members of this church at the same time. Until recent years, Mr. Marvin has lived on what is now the State road. In years past it was his pleasure to take people to church who otherwise had no opportunity. With a large conveyance kept for the purpose, he would bring regularly a large number each Sunday. When there were socials or donations, the young people were never forgotten; thus a number now declare that they owe their first interest in the church to the kindness of Mr. Marvin. Although no longer able to attend services the church is remembered financially, and it always has his prayer for its success.

Jasper BURGIN was born in Delaware County, March 26, 1893. Mr. Burgin is remembered as the builder of the first house of worship. The church has ever had his loyal support both in generous giving and faithful attendance at its services. The most earnest desire of his heart to-day is for its continued prosperity.

What the future of our church will be only God knows. Its power and influence will depend largely upon our steadfast devotion to Christ, and our constant fidelity to the church; and, also much depends upon how each individual member meets the responsibility of Christian service. If a brave and consecrated few fifty years ago, burdened with much discouragement, won many victories for God, then, surely, our church to-day, with its large body of professing Christians, should not fear any experience that may await it, but should enter upon a field of usefulness, greater than any of the past more beneficent to the world, and more honoring to God.

The past has gone. The present time is our opportunity, yet,- "Some people's religion has to do chiefly with the past. They remember old sermons, and relate old experiences and mourn over old defeats, and shout over old victories. For the present, the living, breathing present they have no heart. Now we should have due reverence for the traditions and institutions and personalities and experiences of yesterday, of course. The old days held much that was heroic and noble and good. But our chief business is with to-day. A hundred burning issues face us. Opportunities come trooping by. Duties press upon us which cannot be ignored. We belong not to ancient times but to these times. Look not forever behind. Look at the mighty to-day. Look toward the mightier to-morrow."

"The Future stretches out so far away-
It reaches on beyond our earthly sight,
Swept in the distance by dull clouds of dread,
Double painting fears with scarce a fringe of light.
Hope whispers of the coming years for Him,
Pictured with joyous service and with love;
Yet Doubt nor Hope can make the Future Now,
It is beyond, the Future is with God.
The past is gone, the Future is not ours,
The Present only is within our clasp.
We know the Past, the Future trust with God,
The Present firmly hold within thy grasp,
And send it up to Him a chord of praise;
Whether in toil, in service, or in prayer,
Each moment let us glorify our Lord,
As angels glorify Him "over there." -Selected

(Page 105)

Let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Perfector of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath set down at the right hand of the throne of God. -Hebrews 12:1-

A Word from the Anniversary Committee
Picture of Miss Mabelle M. BOYNTON*

Now that the editor has completed her task and the material is in the hands of the publisher we take the advantage to say a word of approval and commendation. Miss BOYNTON reluctantly accepted the appointment of the committee; but accepting it, has put forth her energy with untiring zeal. We are satisfied. She has had many able assistants, but this instead of making the task easier has really increased her responsibility in keeping the wealth of material within the bounds of a limited space and purpose. Her work has been without recompense-entirely a labor of love for the church and the cause of Christ. Our thanks are due her for what we believe to be a notable success, and are hereby tendered. Anniversary Committee. Dated Dec. 21, 1906
