Helping Hands Society of Stevens Point M.E. Church

A warm breeze parts a lacy curtain as we gaze in on several ladies gathered around an oaken table, some with needles, thread and thimbles, others making patterns with calico squares. Though all are attentive on their work, an older lady is speaking, an older lady thickened through the waist with years of good gravy and homemade biscuits, pretty in a nice way, with graying hair and tiny wrinkles around a generous mouth. This older woman is wise in her ways, a kind and gentle leader of this modest group of the Stevens Point Helping Hand Society. Her voice is low with rich tones as she speaks quietly about the need for a fund raiser to pay off the church debt – there is mention of an oyster supper, a festival in the church yard, the sale of yet another quilt. In a back corner, the secretary pens careful notes in a bound leather journal, pausing every now and then to question a name, a date…..

But for now, we need to close the curtains, back away from the window as what is passed cannot be seen. Before we leave, let’s borrow the journal that lies on the sideboard, its cover faded and dusty with age. Its antiquated pages now rest with us in the gallery to the right….

Eldad Geer

On March 16, 1911, Eldad Geer states that he was born on January 27, 1836 and that the only written proof of his birth – an entry in the family bible – was destroyed in a house fire. He also states that he is the “sole surviving member” of his family. Throughout his entries and statements made in his Civil War Pension Papers, we get bits and pieces of who Eldad Geer was and what his life was like after his service in the Civil War. We find out that he was married to Charlotte Louise Greenman on November 11, 1860 in Lake Como, PA. In a signed affidavit, he states that he has 4 children, 3 girls; Eudora, Vernie, Mary and 1 boy, Rufus. (In the 1900 census, Eldad and Charlotte state that they had 8 children, but only 4 are living).

After his service with Co. K, 137th Penna. Vol., Eldad returns home an injured veteran with both a severe eye injury and harsh bouts of rheumatism. These ailments continue to affect his life rendering him unable to procure employment on a permanent basis. Throughout the pension papers, neighbors, doctors and certified “surgeons” for the United States Bureau of Pensions submit written affidavits concerning his condition and sometimes approve, disapprove his meager pension/stipend. In several cases, statements are made about his poor physical condition.

Eldad Geer was my great grandfather and died on Feb. 6, 1912. He is buried in the Balls Eddy Cemetery in Balls Eddy (Wayne County), PA. Several of his papers have been posted in the gallery so you, too, can read about this Civil War Veteran. A picture of his son, my grandfather, Rufus Geer and his wife, Della (Quick) Geer has been posted as well.

Terrell, Mr. and Mrs. George – In one of the worst grade crossing accidents in the history of the county, two people lost their lives and four others were injured. Mr. and Mrs. George Terrell, of Lanesboro, are dead and their three-year-old son is in serious condition at the Barnes Memorial hospital in Susquehanna. In company with George Romanine and Lewis O’Dell, of Johnson City, the family was en route to Binghamton, where Mr. Terrell expected to establish a new home. Romaine was driving the touring car.
Work on the state road in Lanesboro necessitates a detour for a short distance and the crossing is on this detour adjacent to the railroad station. The lay of the land prevents a view of the tracks in either direction. As Romaine drove his car on the tracks the motor stalled and the fast freight caught the car broadside and hurled it many feet. The little boy was thrown from the machine and through a large window into the waiting room of the station. He suffered a compound fracture of the right leg; his left side was crushed and he sustained cuts of the head and face.
Mr. Terrell was killed instantly and Mrs. Terrell died in the hospital on Monday morning. Mr. Terrell was forty-five years of age and his wife was twenty-eight. Romaine was badly cut, his left cheek being severed from the corner of his mouth to his ear and a part of his ear was torn away. O’Dell was less seriously injured. Edmund Monell, of Lanesboro, temporary watchman at the crossing, was struck by the car as it was hurled through the air and he was painfully injured. Coroner Lyons is making an investigation.

The Stevens Point Church 58th Anniversary

Tucked inside of the Old Home Day Guest book, are three handwritten pages of notes taken during an anniversary service held at the Stevens Point Methodist Episcopal Church on November 10, 1944. The writer refers to this service as the “58th anniversary of the founding of building the Stevens Point church.” When I first read this, I thought that the author was incorrect with the anniversary date as the cornerstone on the church has 1896 as its inscription. Upon re-reading the text, it refers to the “founding of the building” and maybe not the actual completion date. And there definitely would have be a time difference- from the date of land purchase, planning, materials, finding enough men for the labor and finalizing the building to completion-it may have been quite a few years.

If you had a relative that lived in or around Harmony Township during the 1940’s, there is a good chance that they were at this celebration. So, come now, read the notes from that day as our secretary has graciously written everything down, even the names of all of the attendees….

Stevens Point Ladies Aide Society

As with a lot of small country churches in the past, many people played a huge role in its upkeep-the men had to make sure that there was plenty of wood or coal to heat the building, the ladies did their part with keeping the church clean and supplied. Monies were always needed to upgrade or replace items needed for the worship services, for missionary work or for the maintenance on the property or structure.

Because Stevens Point Methodist Church had an attractive community hall next door, the members had the opportunity to raise monies for the church and other organizations by utilizing the hall with special dinners and functions. This little community had a wealth of “willing workers”, ladies that were very busy, not only with their own lives, but were full of activity for church work as well. I have posted numerous pages of minutes from the Stevens Point Ladies Aide Society-the organization that was this strong support system for the Stevens Point Methodist Church. Enjoy a glimpse into the past and perhaps you will recognize one of your relatives as one of these “willing workers”.
