notes written by Clara Eastman sometine in 1899(~age56) Daugther of Calvin Eastman Jr and Clarissa Pettibone sister of Harvey--In 1817 Clarissa Pettibone came to Bristol to unite with the Baptist church. She then living in New Haven came on Saturday the Church meeting being held in the dancing hall of the house kept by Abraham Gagne. The chuch was at that time very small having no settled Pastor or Church building, they met in different places on Sunday. She was baptized and united with the Church which she walked in fellowship with for 72 years and a half as a Christian. She was one of the doubting kind, always feeling her own weakness and unworthiness, ever stood firm to her own convictions of right and wrong, always feeling the deepest interest in he welfare of the Church and prosperity of the cause of Christ in the fall of the same year, she married Calvin Eastman of Bristol and lived to see him with a large circle of relatives become members of the same church eight of her own children with grandchildren down to the forth generation. She was presnt at the first burial service in our cemetery. A man by the name of Johnson and an infant child the same day our yard has been enlarged again and again until it can truly be called the city of the dead. Father died 27 years ago last Fourth of July. When mother came to unite with the church she came alone on foot and brought her clothes nealy 5 miles, gradfather then lived on the farm we had sold to JY Grover and she went home, she rode on horse back behind a man that come to meetings, what a change from today.

Married Calvin Eastman on Nove 12, 1817 in New Haven VT
