    • Marriage record shows both were 21, both from Millbury, and both born in England. They were married at St. John's Episcopal Church, Sutton, by the Rev. Benj. H. Chase, rector. Following is a brief history of this church:

      The village of Wilkinsonville, the section of Sutton in which the church is situated, was named for mill owner David Wilkinson. He also owned the bank, several houses and the Rising Sun Hotel, where the first Episcopal services in Wilkinsonville took place on June 17, 1825.

      The Parish, called the Society of Saint John's, was incorporated on March 10, 1827. Reverend David LeBaron Goodwin, only 25 years of age, presided. Mr. Wilkinson gave $1,000 with which to build the church, and provided a house for the rector and his wife. On June 24, 1828 the cornerstone of the new building was laid. A silver plate was placed in the cornerstone with the church staff names engraved upon it. The church held its first service less than a year later on June 5, 1829. The impressive Ceremony of Consecration was performed by the Venerable Bishop Griswold. Rev. Goodwin remained until 1854 and, during his stay, baptized 257 persons and presented 139 to Bishop Griswold for confirmation. [http://www.st-johns-sutton.org/History.htm]
