Not Forgotten

When September of 1877 began both Mr William Hudson and Mr Simeon Smithard were living me.

But it hath pleased the Almighty God, who doeth all things well, to take both away, both

suddenly, as men may reckon- both too when away from their homes.

Mr Hudson, from being a visitor to, had become a parishioner of Elvington.

Mr Smithard visited Elvington once a year for 12 following years.

Both Mr Hudson and Mr Smithard took part in the openair meeting, which was held

at the Grange on June 15th 1865.


Simeon Smithard
