The annual convention of the
Wayne County Sunday School Asso

the Presbyterian church. This edi
fice is the oldest house of worship
standing in the county. Work on
construction commenced in 1822,
and it was not completed until 1835.
The church cost $5,000.. A number
of ministers labored In this church
until Rev. E. O. Ward was called to
the pastorate In 1853, and continued
in the field until compelled to dis

J. B. Cody Is now pastor of the Beth
The first Sunday schools in this
county were organized in 1818.
There were three schools organized
that year at Bethany, Canaan and
Salem. An interesting incident of
the Canaan school Is that Abigail
Frlsble recited' 3..062 verses on
eight Sundays, for which she receiv
ed a Bible and hymn book. The
Bethany Sunday school was organ
ized July 19, 1818, in the court
house at that place, with six teach
ers, 30 scholars, and V. M. Dlbol as
superintendent. This school organ
ized as association in 1819 for the
opening of schools elsewhere and
through the work of this organiza
tion Sunday schools were started in
other parts of the county. Rev. E.
O. Ward superintended this school
for more than 30 years and It Is
still in existence. There was a Sun
day school union movement in the
county about 1830, but the greatest
organized Sunday school movement
in Wayne county was in 1871, when
the Wayne County Sabbath School

Presbyterian church at Honesdale.
The convention proper opened at

Bethany" address. R. M. Stocker,
Esq., of Honesdale, Wayne county's
historian, then gave a most interest
ing talk upon "Bethany, the First
Home of Sabbath Schools In This
Section." The next half hour was
spent in receiving reports from the
different departments upon the fol
lowing subjects and offered by the
"Teaching Training," Rev. A. L.
Whittaker, rector of Grace Episco
pal church. Several good points
were brought out. "Adult Bible
Class," J. A. Bodle. Mr. Bodle's
report was extremely interesting.
"Home Department," Miss Grace
Hall. She gave a number of sound
facts that furnished thought for re
flection. Miss Caroline A. Kallsch,
who presented "Primary Depart

understood her subject and offered
a number of suggestions that are
