Marriages (August 7)

Bushnell – Camp
Utica Saturday Globe, June 1915

Charles R. & Bertha J. (Camp) Bushnell

Norwich [Chenango Co., NY]:  At the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jay H. Camp, in South New Berlin on Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock, Miss Bertha J. Camp and Charles R. Bushnell were united in marriage by Rev. L.E. Wheeler, pastor of the First Baptist church.  The bride was becomingly attired and attended by Miss Ethel Gage, of South New Berlin, as bridesmaid.  George  Hopkins, of Oneonta, was best man.  Only immediate relatives and friends witnessed the ceremony, after which refreshments were served and Mr. and Mrs. Bushnell left on a brief wedding journey.  Both bride and groom have  a number of friends in Norwich, the bride being a graduate of the teachers’ training class of 1910, since which she has been teaching.  Mr. Bushnell is a former employee of the Chenango National Bank, coming here from the Wilbur National Bank in Oneonta.  He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bushnell, of Gilbertsville [Otsego Co.,  NY], and is now employed by a large electric light and power company at Messina, to which place he will take his bride to make their home.

My uncle Charles had a chicken farm in South New Berlin, New York. My mother, Gertrude V. Bushnell, took us out to New York several times. Because Uncle Charles had all those chickens we had lots of eggs for breakfast.

“Can flavorless food be eaten without salt? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg?” (Job 6:6 NKJV) [At five, I didn’t know this verse, but, not only does an egg need salt, it needs a….]

I remember them asking me if I wanted an egg and I said yes, “if it has an oke in it.” I was 5 years old, and needless to say, my family never let me forget my brilliant statement.

Dan and I returned to visit Aunt Bertha when she was around 90 years old. She was still teaching piano and the choir of her church came to her house for practice. She played the piano for them.

Trying to find that Baptist Church, I came across this from https://www.townofnewberlin.org/history.html 

It tells about that church.

South New Berlin, (p. v.) situated on Unadilla River, eight miles below New Berlin, contains two churches, viz., Methodist and Baptist; four dry goods stores, two grocery and provision stores, one hat, cap, boot, shoe and fur store, several mechanic shops and about 250 inhabitants.

The Baptist Church of this place was organized at White’s Store, in Norwich, about 1804, with Elder Hosmer as pastor. It was removed to this place in 1817, and was under the pastoral charge of Elder Windsor for nine years. The first church edifice was erected during his ministry. In 1826 Elder Chamberlain accepted a call from this Church and served as its pastor for twenty-three consecutive years. After an absence of fifteen years he accepted another call from this Church and is now serving them acceptably for the twenty-eight year. The present church edifice is a fine brick structure erected in 1857.

I contacted that church through Facebook, and it really is the one my grandparents, aunts and uncles attended. I am awaiting word on any historical details about my family.

Stay Tuned!
