    3. A volunteer at the Huntsville, Texas Public Library contacted me and offered to send me items in the library's Catherine Cato Allen file that concerned Jefferson County, MS, the Cato family, Union Church Presbyterian Church and Bensalem Presbyterian Church (located in Lincoln County). I've made a start in sharing this information by placing a booklet online: "Forty-three Year Pastorate in a Country Church" by Rev. C. W. Grafton, who was pastor of both Union Church Presbyterian and Bensalem Presbyterian from 1873-1934. It provides an interesting and detailed picture of a country pastor's life in that place and time. I've, also, included on this page a 1928 photo of U. C. Church from Mrs. Allen's collection, and recent photos of the tombstones of Rev. Grafton and his first wife. I hope to add the rest of the items to the site in the future, but not knowing when that might be, I'll be happy to send copies of the remaining items to anyone who would like to have them now. The items will be of particular interest to the Cato, Doak and Grafton families, but other family names are mentioned. In addition to the booklet and the 1928 photo, the file includes one letter from C. P. McCallum, one from Rev. Grafton, 3 letters from Lewie Cato and 1928 photos of Lewis and Mary Cato's tombstones.

    3. What information do you have on Bensalem Presbyterian Church?  I'm the county coordinator for the Lincoln County website on the MSGenWeb so  would be interested in the Lincoln articles.
