FriendShip Group Lunch & Learn with Dr. Bruce Cauthen
Thursday, July 25th, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., Youth & Activities Building – Darrell Bryant Room
Join with Older Adult ministries for a casual lunch & learn with the always intriguing Dr. Bruce Cauthen sharing on another newfound Puritan ancestor - Rebecca Briggs Cornell (c.1600-1673), his 10th great grandmother. Rebecca arrived in Boston, with her husband Thomas Cornell, in 1637. They were acolytes of Anne Hutchinson and followed her into exile in Rhode Island and, then, New Netherland. The Cornells ultimately returned to Rhode Island where they became distinguished citizens. However, when Rebecca met with a grim demise in 1673, New England was shocked and every attempt was made to conceal the circumstances of her death. Join us for the fascinating true story! $5 per person for lunch. RSVP with Rev. Susan Pinson email@example.com 404.634.3936.
