  1. Trying to find the link to Rev. John Lindsey Robertson and Avonbridge Associate Burger Church. We have a black marble Mantle clock with Corinthian Columns that was gifted to him at this church in 1888. We are wondering how it came to be in the United States. We purchased it in the state of Mississippi in 2005. Would love to know if there are any living kin who know any history of this beautiful clock. Thank you for your help.
