“It is appalling how much we forget.  Take the matter of how our towns are named, for example.  Unless the history has been written down for a specific purpose at the time the naming of the town took place, chances are that 50 years later few people can give an authentic report of the circumstances surrounding the event.”   

- Rev. Ralph B. Kelley   (1959)
