JAMES TO KEEP 70TH ANNIVERSARY (Continued from page one) living in and around Henderson ville have dear memories handed down to them by their ancestors of the happenings in the village during those years. With the present splendid roads and modern modes of transporta tion, it is somewhat difficult to picture the activities of St. James parish in those days, when mem bers attending services proceeded through wooded lanes and over muddy roads, by carriage and at tended by their negro servants, who took their place in the rear of the church, in seats designated for their use. Travel was by stage coach, one principal route being that from Greenville to Asheville. In 1865, the Rector of Calvary and St. James gave his address as: “Shufordsville, via Greenville,” thus indicating that mail sent to Greenville. S. C., was forwarded by post and stage coach to what is now the village of Fletcher,— its name having been changed to this at the time the railroad was built through this section about 1879. In celebrating the anniversary on September 19, the parish will commemorate an event which took place during the hours when the battle of Chickaniauga was being fought. The plans for the day will be: A celebration of the Holy Com munion at an early hour in the day. Following this, the church, parish house, the parts of the new church building which now stand just back of the present building, and the grounds will be open for all interested persons to visit them. In the evening there will be a service held in the church, at which time Mr. T. W. Valentine will give a brief history of the parish from its earliest days down to the present. Following this a social hour will be spent in the parish house. A special anniversary edition of The Chronicle, the parish bulletin, is being prepared, in which will be published many items of interest, concerning the church’s life at St. James parish. Efforts are being made to have all friends, communicants, and ministers who have formerly been identified with the church here present for this occasion.
