Not in Roberts. Relates the history of the church which "came into existence at one of the most interesting periods of the religious history of New-England - the period of the 'Great Awakening'...that was a stirring period, and the revival of that day was a wonderful work." The account begins with the first Congregational church established there in 1728. References Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, the Tennents, Thomas Prince, Josiah Cotton, and others. In 1745, as a result of revival, the church split and the new church called Joseph Snow, Jr. as pastor.  The history continues to the time of the Centennial. Includes doctrinal discussions and documents of the church. Includes lists of male and female members, when admitted; the women listed with maiden names, and to whom married or widowed.
