When the church history was written up it was not known that a single one of the charter members was living. It is now learned that Mrs. Merrill Pearson, of Bloomington, is still living and bright and well at the advanced age of eighty-eight years, and would have been glad to have come with her daughter Lydia to the church anniversary. Since the death of Mrs. Lydia Stewart no communication has been held with the Pearson family, so all knowledge of them had been lost. Seeing an account of the sixtieth anniversary in the Advance, Mrs. Lydia Pearson Sherman wrote a letter to G. L. Stewart telling how glad they would have been to come. Much regret is felt that an effort was not made to find them, as it would have been a great joy to have had a charter member here after sixty years' standing of the church. The letter to Mr. Stewart was read in the church last Sunday. Many of their intimate friends are still living and would have given them a warm welcome. It was a last opportunity of seeing and hearing this dear friend of former days.
