  • Notes 


    • The first Sunday-school held in Luzerne was started in 1817 by Mrs. Ann C. Dunham at the old Ira St. John house that stood near the present residence of P. C. Scovil. There was then no resident minister nor church edifice here. In 1818 Nathan A. Wells and Josiah Fassett led the Sunday-school in the old school-house. Mrs. McUmber and a Miss Jones had charge of it. In about the year 1822 Mrs. Henry Coleman, wife of the Methodist clergyman, superintended one in the old Shearer house, where Mr. Garnar now lives. From that time until 1837 no record can be found throwing any light on the history of this school. The first Sunday-school superintendent in the Union Church in the village was Zina Cowles. He was followed by Ira St. John, William H. Wells, Reuben Wells, D. B. Ketchum, James Taylor, Sylvanus Scovil, Newton Aldrich, C. R. McEwan, W. H. St. John, W. S. Taylor, Orrin Moore, M. L. Willard, W. S. Taylor, and R. N. Ramsey, the present superintendent. The average attendance at present is about 125.
