Fanny Russell Leary. Mrs. Fanny Russell Leary died November 24, 1902, at her temporary home in Hartford, Ct. She was born in South Hadley, August 16, 1838, and was a descendant of Rev. John Russell, one of the earliest settlers of that town. In her death we realize the loss of a patriotic, loyal-hearted woman, who was interested in the past and present of Medford. Almost from its beginning she was one of the most devoted members of the Medford Historical Society. Notes. At the January meeting of the society, Hon. C. H. Porter, of Quincy, gave an address, entitled The 39th Massachusetts Regiment in the Civil War. From personal observation, careful study of official reports and the writings of various commanders, he was able to give his hearers a vivid account of the movements of the regiment from the time of its organization until the victory before Richmond.

of the members of the Bowdoin Square Baptist Church, Boston, presented to this young sister church a table and communion set. In the fall and winter months of 1841-42, services were continued in the Town Hall, which, however, soon grew too strait for them. The Sunday evening services were attended by throngs of eager listeners. Young People's meetings were held, and at this time were started the meetings—continued without interruption ever since —on the Monday after the first Sunday in January, at 6 A. M. (About thirty were present on January 5 of the present year, 1903.) The Town Hall was now found to be inadequate to the needs of this infant church.
