Name of creator
The Gilbert Plains Presbyterian congregation was organised in 1901 and a Board of Managers was formed. A church building was opened in 1904. Rev. Dr. E. W. Johnson had come to minister to the congregation in 1902 and stayed until Local Union took place in 1918. The field included Gilbert Plains School, Markham, Tanner, Strathcona, Glenlyon and Valley River. The Presbyterian Church was later used by Gilbert Plains Union Church after 1918 and later as St. Paul's United Church after 1925. A number of Presbyterian records from this congregation have been destroyed over the years. Some were lost in the fire that destroyed the Maple Leaf Newspaper building, as the editor was also the secretary of the congregation. A flood of the St. Paul's United Church basement in 1935 was responsible for further losses.
