When the 175th Anniversary celebration of St. John’s Church was first planned for the Fall of 1945 it was thought desirable that at last a permanent record be made of the great adventure which is her history. Booklets had been printed at odd times such as the occasion of the 150th anniversary in 1920, in 1933, and in 1937 but never has a comprehensive history and membership record been published. This book therefore is long overdo. Yet it cannot be said even now that a full history has been written of St. John’s. So detailed is it and so interwoven with the great episodes of the early Mohawk Valley days that it would take many more hundreds of pages to do it full justice. Rather this is a summary. There are innumerable facts left out for want of time and space. For these silences the writer begs to be excused.
Though this book has been well over a year in preparation it was at last published in haste and though it has been checked and re-checked, errors undoubtedly remain. Need for economy caused the alteration of the book’s format and forced the exclusion of the 56 pictures of service men and women which had been gathered. Their service records, however, are included.
