Juree Burns is currently in the hospital but is scheduled to be discharged this week. I hope she is feeling better.

Pastor Greg Roberts’ grandson Xavier had his second chemotherapy treatment and thankfully did better than he did with the first. Keep their family in your prayers.

W3CU will be hosting a community prayer walk next Sunday evening, Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. beginning in the Sanctuary. We plan to celebrate with soup and sandwiches in the Fellowship Hall after the evening service and hope you will attend and bring along a friend.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): Rev. Sullivan Edmiston married Lavandi Bartlett, the daughter of Latham and Hannah Marsh Bartlett of Crosby Twp., Hamilton County, Ohio in 1863. Latham was the son of Josiah born in 1767. He was an early resident of Hamilton County and there is an article about him in the Hamilton County history. The families are both buried in the New Haven Cemetery. Sullivan’s first church was at the Decatur Methodist Church and several of their children are shown as born at Decatur. They had a 38 acre farm near Clayton before they bought the farm near Winchester. They were the parents of five boys and one girl. They are all buried in the Winchester Cemetery with the exception of Franklin. James L., the oldest son born in 1863, married Clara Crissman. They purchased the farm when Sullivan and Lavandi retired and moved to Hillsboro. They had seven children and people may remember some of them. Continued next week.

Remember that I depend on Information from others which is due by Sunday evening and can be sent by calling 937-695-9977 (leave a message) or by email @ japorter45697@gmail.com (Please note I have a new email address).
