Over fifteen years ago, Laura Anne Harrison was approached by the pastor of Old Saint Paul’s to put together a scrapbook about the history of the historic church. She and her husband, Stephen Randolph Harrison, began researching the history of this congregation. It became apparent that the old records should be located and thoroughly researched. The writing and transcribing of articles and transcripts required diligent detailed attention. Many times they would work together, with magnifying glass in hand, attempting to decipher old handwriting. They made the decision to include the original documents side by side with the transcribed copies. Their commitment to this project required thousands of hours spread over many years.
