Extracts From the Diaries of Reverend William Pressey, the
Parish Priest of St. John's Church, Ashton, Rhode Island
Jean Ellston wrote, "I inherited diaries dating from 1894 through 1938 (missing 1915) kept by my grandfather who was parish priest of St. John's Church, Ashton, RI during those years. These contain lists of marriages, baptisms, confirmations and funerals of many parishoners attending the church in that community during that time. The information usually contains only the names and dates of the event and little else.... As I understand it, many of the records the church kept were lost, so these diaries might possibly be of help."

Note from Jean: "At this time he was apparently also doing sacrements at another small, nearby Episcopal Church in Mannville RI called Emanuel as he was also preaching there. This church, as of now, has moved to Cumberland Hill RI and has grown quite large. Have no way of telling which sacrement was performed where for the time being -- eventually he went back to doing just St. Johns."
