Used to run a stable and live on a farm, now I am back into banking for awhile. Still have horses and love animals.

Gloria Dei "Old Swede's Church"

We squeezed in a visit to my ancestors church which is the oldest church in PA and one of the oldest in the country. I could not find his marker because the markers pre mid 1700's were no longer legible. I left my information with the historian who will locate the location of his grave and let me know. I took the following pictures of the church and grounds, as a side note, Betsy Ross was married in that church.

The church has also translated original journals from the founding of the church from Swedish to English and published the information and he is referenced several times in the first three volumes. I will purchase them sometime to keep them for future generations!
