Sacrifice in Sierra Leone

From The Annals of Trawden Forest (page 14): “The first member of the Trawden Society to enter the ranks of the ministry was the Rev. James Walton, who volunteered for service as a Wesleyan Methodist Minister in Sierra Leone, West Africa, after his three years training in Richmond Wesleyan College, in 1902. ” He and his wife, Polly (nee) Bannister, reached Freetown in October, 1906. She, however, contracted Malarial fever and died a year later.
