Brief Description of Subject: This description appeared in the January 29, 1979 edition of the Farmington Observer:

"Across the church is a rose window donated by Charles Pettibone in memory of his first wife, Gladys Hazelton Pettibone. Reddish tints of color cast rosy shadows over the pews.

'She was a titian-haired woman and that's why the window has a titian color,' explained Mrs. Esther Meredith, church historian."

Gladys Hazelton Pettibone died in 1916 in childbirth. She was but 26 years old.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
