'A few families brought up a baptized members of the Church of England,
emigrating from England in 1833, (many from around Alconsbury, England),
and meeting in the summer of 1834 on
Jones', now Limestone, Prairie formed the nucleus of the Parish of
Christ Church, Limestone Prairie.

They sent letters to their friends in England and received a total of
114 pounds in donations to form a church. Mrs. Handasyde received 20 pounds.

The first letters to England were written in l842 from which ensued through 1843-44 an interesting correspondence, principally between the Lady Alicia Lambert (sister of the Earl of Caran) and Mrs. Euphemia Clark, detailing the progress of the work on both sides of the Atlantic. In the old Parish Register there are copies of some of the correspondence of these two 'great ladies' of their times. In fact, it seems the ladies took over raising the money for their church. Following are the donations received as recorded in the Parish Register:

Mrs. Isabella Clark collected through Mrs. Galloway 25 pounds sterling, Mrs. Isabella Clark through Mrs. M. Holland 50 lbs., including 20 lbs. from Lord Kenyon (a friend of Bishop Chase for whom he later named a. college founded by him in Ohio). Mrs. Pennington 13 lbs., Mrs. Handagsyde 20 lbs. and 114 lbs by Mrs. Euphemia Clark through Lady Lambert, assisted by Mrs. A. P. Hamilton. 20 lbs of this was a gift of the Dowager Queen Adelaide who was much esteemed by her charitable nature.
