Religious Influence-Historic SettlementsSeeking shelter from a storm, Rev. John James, a circuit riding preacher ordained by the Church in England, but disciplined in the beliefs of the Methodist Church of John Wesley, met by chance with local resident David Sayres on a cold, wintry night in 1780. Sayres, a colonial soldier and patriot, did not favor sheltering any man representing the English crown, but could not allow the Reverend to stay out in the blizzard.
