Don A. Sanford


The Seventh Day Baptists and their meeting house are the subjects of this issue. Sanford utilizes research from several sources, including the Society, to write a detailed history of a congregation and place of worship that reveals new findings and debunks old myths. He tells the story of the Seventh Day Baptists in Newport through the lives of his ancestors, Samuel and Tacy Hubbard, charter members of the Newport Seventh Day Baptist church, founded in 1671.
