Some background on St. John's Presbyterian Church:
From 1787 to 1815, the Presbyterians the first to hold services in Cornwall, Ontario. The first pastor to the congregation was the Reverend John Bethune of Williamstown. Services were held monthly. From 1815 until 1827 services were held more regularly by Rev. Joseph Johnston and Rev. Harry Leith. Both men were masters of the District High School. The first church building was a log structure on the east side of Pitt Street located approximately where the Bank of Montreal is today. The building was referred to as the Presbyterian Meeting House. A white frame church was built in 1827 and at the same the time the first Kirk Session was formed. The church was initially known as the "Scotch Church" then renamed "St. John's" in 1831. The cornerstone of the present St. John's church building was laid in 1888 and officially opened on March 17, 1889.

NOTE about print quality: acquired MacDonald Research Centre after the passing of its founder and primary transcriber/compiler, Duncan MacDonald. We are pleased to make his books available under the new MacDonald Research imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by Mr. MacDonald, without corrections or additions. Modern technology helped us reproduce the original work in as-good-as, or better quality as that which was originally published. Much of MacDonald's original work was created on a typewriter. His well-worn "masters" were made on a photocopier. We've cleaned them up as much as possible without re-keying all of the content resulting in books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were orignally published.
