Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

Recently, I had the opportunity to take a field trip to the Clay County Archives in Liberty, Missouri. The volunteer staff was very helpful and made my trip very enjoyable. I was amazed at their collection. They have Clay County probate records, early marriage records, civil and criminal court records, school records, information about local businesses, and of course, they have a section of books on one of Clay County’s most infamous resident, Jesse James. I had a wonderful afternoon looking at the information they had on my hometown of Excelsior Springs and was surprised to find quite a lot of information regarding neighboring Ray County, too.







For anyone doing genealogy research in Clay County, Missouri, I would definitely recommend a trip to the Clay County Archives.
