Elizabeth Barratt, author of The History of Carmel Valley, The History of Gilroy, and All Saints’ Centennial Book, serves also as the historian for All Saints’. She has just completed, with eyeglass in hand, the monumental task of reading and digitally recording one hundred years of All Saints’ history–and now the baptismal record of all our members is accessible to you and your family.

I have just come across the baptisms of Joan Elizabeth Dekker and Susan Mary Dekker, both daughters of William Nikolas Dekker and Mary Steinbeck Dekker on October 27, 1935. The sole godparent for both of them was (apparently their uncle) John Steinbeck! Another historic event for All Saints’! – Elizabeth Barratt
