Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 90
The Country Church  -cf. my trip to the Rockville Church in _Men and Manners,_ vol. 13, p. 300. On that occasion I purchased a copy of _Our Methodist Pioneers_ by Margaret W. Johnson, which tells of some old-time preachers in Vaca Valley and Suisun Valley. See fuller account of this trip to Rockville in Jepson Correspondences, letter to Vacaville Reporter, dated Sept. 8, 1940.  British Stock The following are the family names of landholders in Suisun Valley as taken from the Supervisor_s Map of Solano Co. [County], 1872. Pangburn, Pierce, Baker, Barbor, Sheldon, Harper, Boynton, Abernathy, Haile, Lambert, Wolfskill, Long, Lincoln, Clayton, Henderson, Swan, McCrary, Ramsey, Turner. I add: Blake, Peabody, Scarlett.  ::::::::: The Country Preachers  One of the early day preachers in California was J.A. Benton, of the _First Church of Christ_ in Sacramento. He was the author of _The California Pilgrim,_ printed in Sacramento in 1853. It is my remembrance, from relations by my elders, that he was one of the evangelists who came to Vaca Valley in early days for camp meetings or revivals. -Campbellites. cf. Barton Warren Stone, Dict. Am. Biog. 18:71, who was a _Christian_ as opposed to the _Disciples of Christ_ (Campbellites). cf. biography of Alexander Campbell, the founder, in Dict. Am. Biog.  In an English village, the dead are buried in the churchyard. In the very early days of the village, the graveyard was put alongside the college in which was the chapel _ that is, it was placed across the street west from the college.
