Warrior and Statesman
U.S. Senator Philip Reed served in the Revolution and the War of 1812. He won the battle of Caulk's Field in 1814 as a Lieutenant Colonel and was promoted General soon afterward. When the granite slab marking his grave was placed in 1902, the grave had been unmarked for 70 years.

7. The I U Stone
The 1978 National Register Nomination Form says that "the name Christ Church I.U. is derived from a stone with those initials found in the church yard; their origin is unknown." The more recent Church History says that "IU stands for Isaac Usilton, who gave both the land and the money to build the original sanctuary. Itís been Christ Church IU (IU to those of us who love it) since the first church was built in mid-1700ís."

Seen here behind the IU stone, the sexton's house predates the mid-19th century church building. It was built in the late 18th century.
