From Scotland, through Nova Scotia, to Lake Nokomis Presbyterian Church
The connection to the Presbyterian Church for me comes through the maternal side of my family, specifically my grandmother Marcellaine Scinto. Her family, which I have traced through the family Bible, came from Scotland, bringing their Presbyterianism along with them. The Hume family left Scotland in the 1850s, came to Nova Scotia (New Scotland) and travelled along the St. Lawrence Seaway and eventually settled in Michigan.
When my grandparents married, in 1919, my grandfather gave up his Catholicism and became a Presbyterian for her, and she learned to cook spaghetti for him.
