Some miscellaneous early items up to about 1918
This is another photo of the first schoolhouse built in 1896, probably taken about 1900 showing improvements. It is difficult and challenging to determine what the improvements might be.
This is a photo of Chaplain Winfield Scott with his wife Helen seated on Old Maud. A veteran of the Apache campaigns, Old Maud retired with Scott when he left Fort Huachuca in January, 1893.
This photo of the Rev. Limon T. Trumbull was taken in 1911 when he was still pastor at First Baptist Church in Astoria, Oregon before he became the first pastor of First Baptist Church in Scottsdale in 1912.
The business card used by Rev. Trumbull while at First Baptist Church in Astoria, Oregon.
By historical coincidence, Winfield Scott began his chaplain years at Fort Canby, Washington Territory on October 11, 1882. Scott held services at Fort Canby in a Chapel Room on the second floor of the Guard house every other Sunday. "On alternate Sundays, he journeyed fourteen miles across and up the river [Columbia River] to the prosperous community of Astoria, Oregon. There he organized a Sunday school and held three services on the Sabbath." Winfield Scott, by Richard Lynch. No indication has yet been found of a direct personal connection between Chaplain Scott and Rev. Trumbull.
This photo, probably taken in 1915, is Rev. and Mrs. R.P. Pope and Bro. Pope’s Mission car. This is evidence that FBCS was responsible for having the first “Pope-mobile” in Arizona, some 72 years before the first, and only visit to Arizona by a Pontiff!
