  • Note: At the time this church was organized there was but one other Baptist church in the State of Connecticut. This one was located at Groton, three miles west of Old Mystic; organized in 1705, with Valentine Wightman as its first pastor. It must be borne in mind that the date which marks the rise of this church carries us far back into the early settlement of the country -- and seventy years before the Revolution.
