Foote. The congregation has yet to identify any of Reverend Foote’s relatives.

Current State spoke with Clifford Knaggs, the church’s senior warden, and junior warden John Bunday about the mystery. Knaggs says the starts with the discovery of a book in their library indicating that the church had included a time capsule in setting the cornerstone.
