Continued from Milton’s Congregational Ministers of 1847-90
The sequence of Congregational ministers listed in Scales’ History of Strafford County concluded in 1890. This list has been constructed from other sources.
The Milton Congregational ministers of this 1891-1924 period were Robert T. Osgood, Myron P. Dickey, Joseph N. Walker, Clarence E. Pike, Simon F. Goodheart, Owen E. Hardy, and Newell W. Whitman.

HERE AND THERE. On Tuesday, June 16, Mr. Robert Osgood will be ordained and installed as pastor of the Congregational church at Milton Ponds [Three Ponds]. The Rev. Alexander McKenzie, D.D., of Cambridge, Mass., is expected to preach the sermon on this occasion, the distinguished divine having counted Mr. Osgood as one of his parishioners. The latter is a young gentleman of fine ability and training, his early life was spent in Europe, where his mother is at present directing the education of her younger children. He is the grandson of Dr. Osgood, who served as pastor to a church in Springfield, Mass., for a half century, and it is thought that the younger man is moved by the right spirit in coming to minister to the picturesque village across the hills. Messrs. Hall of Dover, Street of Exeter, Lewis of Salmon Falls, and Clark of Wolfboro and other neighboring pastors besides Lyman Whiting and Prof. Tucker, with the Senior Mr. Osgood, will be present at the ordination, on June 16, of Robert Osgood of Milton.

News from the Classes. Class of 1887. R.T. Osgood writes an interesting letter from Paris. From 1900 to 1917 he was principally engaged in teaching, especially in French. In the spring of 1917 he went to France as a volunteer hospital aid and since then has been engaged in war activities before and after the Armistice until the present time. He hopes to return to this country in the fall (Harvard Graduate’s Magazine Association, 1923).
He Was Here. Robert T. Osgood of Valenciennes, France, a Latin teacher at Pittsfield High in 1887 and 1888, is looking for proof of his American citizenship. In a letter to the mayor yesterday, Osgood asked him to please certify he was a resident here in 87 and 88, A check by Superintendent of School Russell verified Osgood’s claim, and a letter of certification is on the way to Valenciennes. During the war, Osgood explained in his letter, his documents were lost when the consulate at Lille was closed and later merged with another office. Citizenship proof is necessary to put his personal affairs in order, he noted. Mr. Osgood’s family lived in Hancock years ago before he moved to France (Berkshire Eagle, July 8, 1948).
Robert T. Osgood would then have been about eighty-four years of age. Nothing has come to hand to suggest that he returned to the United States. (He likely died in France).

REV. MYRON P. DICKEY DEAD. Graduate of Dartmouth and Held Pastorates In Ludlow, Mass., Milton, N.H, and Kennebunk, Me. KENNEBUNK, Me, Aug 30 – Rev. Myron Parsons Dickey, pastor of the First Congregational Church, died at 3 o’clock this afternoon of complications following an operation for appendicitis. He was in his 63d year. He was brought home from the Maine General Hospital in Portland two weeks ago and seemed slightly improved for a time, but last Friday his condition grew serious and he failed steadily to the end. Mr. Dickey was born Feb 19, 1852, in Derry, N.H, the son of David Woodburn and Sarah (Campbell) Dickey. He attended Pinkerton Academy in Derry and was graduated from Dartmouth College in the class of 1874. For a time he was principal of the High School in Hampstead, N.H. Deciding to enter the ministry, he went to Yale Theological Seminary and after graduating he took up his first pastorate in 1883 over the First Congregational Church at Ludlow Center, Mass.

Deaths. MRS NELLIE WENTWORTH DICKEY. At Milton, N.H., Dec. 4, 1918, after a very brief illness, Mrs. Nellie Wentworth Dickey, widow of Rev. M.P. Dickey, passed away. At the time of her death, Mrs. Dickey was living at her mother’s home and was acting as assistant in Nute High School, Milton, N.H. A graduate of this same institution and of the Framingham Normal School, she early proved herself a teacher of remarkable enthusiasm and value in Milton, Newington, Peterboro, and Rochester, N.H. A great company of pupils will look back to the awakening and inspiring touch of her personality as something never to be forgotten. While teaching at Rochester she became the wife of Rev. M.P. Dickey, who had been her pastor in Milton, and at that time was minister in Kennebunk, Me. In this new relation, no woman could be more useful and beloved than she proved herself to be, and during the illness and hospital experience of Mr. Dickey the beautiful devotion of Mrs. Dickey touched all our hearts. Then when she was left alone in her bereavement and went back with the same heroism and cheerfulness as of old to her work as a teacher, we could only marvel at her strength of soul. The survival value of such a personality as hers must bring to us all not only abiding comfort but abounding assurance of the immortal life. It must be that God has been pleased to call her to some other room in his immortal and eternal presence and service. C.H.P. (Pilgrim Press, 1919).

Apraham, pastor of the Congregational church at Green’s Landing, receives letters confirming the report of the suffering of his near relatives in Armenia. Some weeks ago Mr. Apraham received a letter from a missionary saying that his sister, with her five children, were in utter destitution. Later, Mr. Apraham received a letter from his sister confirming the worst. The husband and his brother were shot down before the eyes of his wife and children, and when the grief-stricken wife cried out in suffering to her Savior, one of the murderers, with an oath, struck her, saying “Do you still call on Jesus?” Two younger sisters of Mr. Apraham were robbed of all their possessions by the Moslems who protect them. An uncle of Mr. Apraham writes, “We are sitting naked in our shop, our house plundered and reduced to ashes. Read the 79th Psalm if you would get a faint idea of our condition.” Mr. Apraham is a recent graduate of Bangor Theological Seminary, and the Green’s Landing church is his first charge. He has sent money to his relatives in Armenia, but hardly dare hope that it reaches them (Portland Press Herald, February 20, 1896).

It was decided that committees of five from each church would convene and form a Community Church. The Baptist Church was used for worship, while the former Congregational Church was adapted into the Parish House. The members of these two churches believed the same things, doctrinally, and so no great theological division separated the people from their congregational neighbors (CCM, 2020).
