Title

Christ Church burial site of Clark Brown

Description

The Christ Church in Wayside (Newberg), Maryland is still standing today. This church is linked to Tabitha Brown, who helped found the Tualatin Academy which became Pacific University. Brown's husband Reverend Clark Brown is buried on the church grounds. The back of the photo reads, Rev. Clark Brown and Rev. Benjamin Contee are buried beneath the floor and beside the altar, but we do not know which is which. I placed the two hymnals on the floor. If Clark Brown rests on the left, his head would be about under the nearer book. His head is toward the west.
