(Aunt H, baptized in August 1975, upstate New York, United States)
(story told by Grandpa)

When aunt H was baptized our church met in a public school. We had not yet built the chapel which became the stake center. As such we had no baptismal font. The closest one was in the Church chapel at Palmyra. So Aunt H was baptized in Palymra, not far from the home of Joseph Smith and the sacred grove. On the way home we stopped for ice cream which then became a family tradition for other family members baptisms. [Aunt H was the oldest child in the family]
