Today, I would like to share a picture of a postcard that I just obtained via eBay. It is of the local Episcopal church in Otter Lake, Michigan. My recent post, Wordless Wednesday – The Baptism twins!, showed my father and late uncle being held by their grandfather, William E. McCormack, and at present, an unknown woman. Their baptism took place at St. Johns. Even though I have been to Otter Lake a few times, I haven’t been able to confirm this story. The story is that William E. McCormack has his name on a window in St. Johns.One thing that I would like to know is when St. Johns was built. Since portions of my dad’s family have been in Otter Lake since the 1870s, quite a few of them could have been baptized, christened, married and had burial services conducted there. That is something that I will have to research, the build date of St. Johns.
Thank you for stopping by!
