1878 · St. Mary's Episcopal Church is Built

Age 1

The Episcopal Diocese of Florida organized a mission church in 1878 to provide a location that could serve seasonal guests. Visitors and residents from Green Cove Springs raised over $1000 to build the church. On March 10, 1879, the Church held its first service. This location is notable because it would eventually be added to U.S. National Register of Historic Places (February 17, 1978).
1881 · The Assassination of James Garfield

Age 4

Garfield was shot twice by Charles J. Guitea at Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881. After eleven weeks of intensive and other care Garfield died in Elberon, New Jersey, the second of four presidents to be assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln.

Name Meaning

English (very common in England, especially in the south Midlands, and in Wales) and German (especially northwestern Germany): patronymic from the personal name Adam . In the U.S. this form has absorbed many patronymics and other derivatives of Adam in languages other than English. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 .)
