This is the initial volume of Reminiscences which document our heritage in Easton. The first article is an unusual perspective of our first town historian, Rev. William L. Chaffin, prepared for a 1951 Historical Society meeting. Our early history is reflected in articles about Dr. Seth Babbitt, one of our first doctors, and a description of Easton's role in the American Revolution.  Other articles included are about the Ames General Store, the Swift Brothers Store in Furnace Village and family histories of Annie Lawton Wilbar and Joseph and Julia Lyons Connolly. There are several other interesting stories from support for the Easton miliary to an article of an amazing journey of an Easton school bell. An overview of the Easton Historical Society is also presented.
