1869 - Parsonage Problem

News
A church society in Milford, N.H., having repaired its church and raised its pastor's salary, set about providing him with a parsonage. Contributions of five thousand dollars were made, and a house bought, the deed drawn up, and the money ready to be paid, when it was found that the former deed was given in Know Nothing times, and forbade the sale of the land to any foreigner, and also prohibited any foreigner ever to reside upon it. Such restrictions were not to be agreed to, and the society are now looking for another house.
