    while visiting Pennypack in search of my ancestry, I came up on this church taking lots of pictures durning my visit.
    Rev Joseph Eaton my 6th great grand father and his family was part in the founding of this great place. I never knew about this Baptismal Rock till now. I knew of the Annvirsary coming up in June of last year but was unable to go. Thank you in sharing this bit of history. Would like to add some of your notes to my Eaton book, due to print in july 2014 if I may.
    Thank you
