1906 Program for Dedication, Third United Presbyterian Church, New Castle, Pennsylvania

Program for Dedication, December 16, 1906; Third United Presbyterian Church, Cor. Pittsburg and Beckford Streets, New Castle, Pennsylvania.  J. Elmer Campbell, Pastor

Composed of one piece of paper approximately "11-1/4" by 6"; then folded once.

This program was found in the Bible of Thomas Berry and Eliza Jane (McNair) Berry of the New Castle, Pennsylvania, area.  Thomas died in 1867 and Eliza in 1901.  No other people are mentioned in the Bible, but Eliza must have passed it on to someone who tucked in this program and other items that date from after her death.

Pane 3 of the program gives the dates of services from December 17 to December 23.

Names included, in the order in which they appear:
  • J. Elmer Campbell, Pastor of Third United Presbyterial Church
