  • Notes 
    • MR. ROBERT BROOMFIELD was one of the members who was deeply interested in the church and its prosperity. He lived for it and he labored for it, giving it a joyful and willing service in the department with which he was identified, that of the Managers. He was an unassuming man, a good business man, a straightforward and trustworthy man. He honored God in the service of His house. He brought up his family to keep the Sabbath, and taught them by example and precept to live in the fear of God. He passed through the fires of a long and trying sickness with singular patience and without a murmur, supported by the Word of God and cheered and comforted with its revelation. He died in 1891, and the Managers record the loss the congregation sustained.1a
