PAGE EIGHT LONG ISLAND TRAVELER-WATCHMAN THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1975 Bell Raising Marks 50th Year Bell-raising (see the bell at the top of the picture?) was a highlight of the three-day Stack family reunion last weekend in Mattituck. Senior participants are, left to right: (standing) Mrs. Arabella Stack McDermott; her husband, John J. McDermott, and Dan J. Stack, Jr.; (kneeling) John A. Stack, Mrs. Angelica Stack Smith and Richard A. Stack. Some 65 y e a rs ago, a College Point couple on a sailing honeymoon dock­ ed at the Old Mill on Mattituck Creek, added their nam e s to the many inscribed on its v e n e rable beam s and looked over the surrounding country­ side. ‘‘They liked it so >vell they came back and bought a house on Pcconic Bay in 1925,\ said Mrs. Arabella McDe'rmott, oldest of thevfivc child­ ren of the late Mr. and lyirs. Dan J. Stack, Sr. , This past week()nd, the house they purchased from J a m e s Rambo, which is the “ Log C a b in” in fact as well as in name, was the gathering place of widely dispersed Stacks, who came together to celebrate the 50th anni- versary^ of the family's sum m e r residence in.

Present’were, the four other Stack children: Mrs. Patrick (Angelica) Smith of Garden City: Dan J. Stack, Jr,, retired ■ airline pilot of Menlo Park. Cal.j John A. Slack, a Babylon school principal, and Richard A. Stack, an. airline . pxccutive from Appleton. Wis. Six of the 16 grand­ children of Jhe senior Dan Stacks were in the group as were all four of their g r a n d c h ildren. S p ouses o f c h ild­ ren and grandchildren and a good showing of cousins and other rela­ tives brought the census close to the 50 mark. In the limelight at the happy gathering were 83-year-old Charles J. Heck of Nassau Point, an uncle of the Stack children, and one-year-old Peter Frederick McDermott, son of Mr. a n d Mrs. John J . McDermott, Jr. of Athens, Ohio. Perhaps the highpoint of the re­ union was the raising of the old schoolhouse bell, cast in 1838 and presented to Mr. a n d Mrs. Dan Stack. Sr., by friends in 1928 and used by them to summon children from bay and beach. Somehow, it came loose from its mooring last winter. Now, hung on a chain attached to the twin trunks of an'oak tree, it is a vailable to summon later, generations of Stacks to d inners aud duties, and possibly to another family reunion sometime in the future.

The early settlers were charged with narrowness, selfish­ ness, bigotry, sourness and with a disposition to claim that the saints should rule the earth. The early settlers of Southold did not make this claim. To charge this upon them is s lander. The \B lue Law of Connecticut,” a code which never had a real, legal existence, nor any other origin than the malicious inven­ tion of the spiteful and disreputable Hugh Peters, the e p ithet “ b l u e \ was applied to a nyone who, in the reign of Charles II opposed the looseness, sensuality and voluptousness of the times. This e p ithet was applied not onlv to persons biit to the customs, institu-' tions a nd laws of the Puritans by those who wished to r e n d e r the prevailing sy.stem ridiculous.
