I i The observance of Father's , ^^j is a great experience. On i this occasion we recall the fond fellowship and pleasant relationship b e - tween parents and children. The loving care and guidance w h i c h gave us during our young a n d t e n d e r d a y s . Then think of the godly life of a «,...istian father one who by fexample and precept sets be- Store his Family the way of [truth and righteousness. · The Bible states plainly that ;the- father is the head of the iliousehold, and as such he has i [he-responsibility to provide for [the family, in things temporal .'and spiritual. If the father fails ko-do this, the Bible says he has denied the faith, and that She' is worse than an infidel. It [is a great privilege to be a husband, and father. It is a great joy to secure the things ·\vhich make the household hap- ipy. j' It brings peace of mind, and [satisfaction of heart to see the Family prospering in material possessions, and intellectual development. It is also rewarding to see the Family making prog- ji-ess in things sacred and eter- 'nal. i The provision for. physical, ,and intellectual attainment is hot enough. The spiritual nature of a family needs attention. 'The moral principles of truth knd honesty must be imparted io all. ,; If a father fails in demon- pirating these noble qualities lo 'iis family, he has not come ,jp to the purpose for which IlGod m'ade him a husband and 'father. In addition to the benefits of an earthly father, there ·is also the blessings of a Heavenly Father. '· The Rev. Russell Plants | River Street Baptist Church William G.

Cozzcns at Stratton's Falls. Strallons Falls itself . . . a place of great scenic beauty, and the location of a thirty-fool waterfall and a pond surrounded by woodland, was named lor the well known Slratton family which has many descendants living in .Roxbury and which counts the famous novelist Gene Stratton Porter among its members. Pioneers here were Samuel and Joseph Stratton of Fail-field, Connecticut, w h o came to Roxbury in 1792 when the place was wilderness. They cleared their farm from the unbroken forest and built a "full- ing" (woolen) mill jusl below the falls. However they did not build (he Colonial mansion, and whore they lived is probably fallen to decay years ago. Waller, a son of 'Joseph built Ihc stone house now owned by Miss Lena Corbin. Another pioneer, Ambrose Hicks, who had lived previously in Nova Scotia and Rhode Island, came to Roxbury about this time, and built a home in the wilderness. The Biographical Review stales (Hal Ambrose followed a trail of blazed trees, took up a hundred acres and built a log cabin where he raised one son Ira and two daughters. Ira Hicks married Laura Chase daughter of another pioneer, David Chase, and had three sons, of whom Charles remained in Roxbury. Ira Hicks buiH the stalely Colonial mansion some time around the middle part of the 19th century. There was a Slrallon's Falls posloffice from December 1840 until November 15, 1876 when il was discontinued. The first postmaster was Ezra W. Stratton, ono of the sons of the pioneer Joseph. Second was Lewis Stratton. He and Ira Hicks kept a general store and postoffice together. When Lewis Stralton died in 1851, Ira Hicks became botli postmaster and manager of Ihe store. He was postmaster for ten years until he was succeeded by his neighbor Daniel Rowland (whose family built Ihe present Abram Van Dyke place). Slrallon's Falls was quite a communily Ihen. . . fully as large as "Beaver Dam" (which the present Roxbury village was then called, although Ihe postoffice established in 1806, was always called, Roxbury). There was another slore there . . . a "fulling" or woolen mill, established by the pioneer Stratton brothers. . , and there was a cooper shop. . . a blacksmith si.op . . . and an old inn, or tavern. Also, the leading church in town at that time. . . the Old bchool Baptisl or the "Yellow meeting house" built in 1833, was located there. Then the railroad came to town in 1872. Four years later the Stratlon's Falls postoffice was discontinued. . . as business followed (lie localion of the present railroad slation, and has remained there since. The old slore posloffice became a mere storehouse, . . then a cheese factory and was eventually dismantled. Of all the business and the homes that stood al Stratton's Falls in early days only a few remain: The Hicks Colonial mansion which Ira Hicks deeded lo his son Charles in 1883. (Ira died in 1889 at the age of 89). . . the Nelson Rowland place (Van Dyke house) the Captain Patterson place (now owned by Earl T. Schreiber) and the Yellow meeling house. . . . all fine historic places.
