Stanton’s Mill

Mrs. Jarena Lee, first female preacher of the A.M.E. Church, wrote that in April-May 1824, “I stopped next at Concord, and in the Old Methodist connexion tried to encourage the Lord’s people to persevere. God displayed His power by a general outpouring. of the Spirits – sinners cried for mercy, while others shouted for joy. Spoke also to a congregation of colored and white at Stanton Mills; I arrived again at Eastern Shore [Easton], where I spoke in Bethel Church during Quarterly Annual Meeting.”
