Comments about this page

  • My great grandfather John Sumners was, according to his obituary, the superintendent of the Steele Street Sunday School for 19 years. He died in 1924, so the years would have been 1905-1924. I hunted a long time to decide that this little house was the church. Now I am delighted to have stumbled upon your site, confirming my find. Thank you.
