Kendall - local hist., geneaology

Someone looking for info on an Orrin J. Smith, Kendall, member ME church there etc. in 1860s. Were interested in church records mic we have, but when I looked was minutes of quarterly conferences, not member rolls. Supplied some other info from 1869 directory, plat maps etc.

*** Later the same day, patron emailed me back thanking me - and mentioned that this Orrin Smith's son was Charles Smith who was a math prof here early 1900s! I just didn't make the connection, Smith being so common a name. Had some more info I could send him once I knew that.
