      Elder Issac Case was born February 25, 1762 in Rehoboth, Mass, son of William and Abigail Bell Case. He married Joanna Snow at Thomaston, Maine June 26, 1785, and from 1784 - 1792 he was pastor at Thomaston. He arrived in Readfield June 17, 1792, organized a Readfield Church in a barn, and continued as its first pastor for several years. According to The Story of Maine Baptists by Walter Cook, Case "formed the Maine Baptist Missionary Society in 1804 in Readfield, which was the first statewide missionary group of Baptists in Maine." The Manchester Meetinghouse which is now located on Scribner Hill Road in Manchester was Elder Case's church, and was moved to its present location around 1839. Elder Case died on November 3, 1852 and is buried in Case~Barber Cemetery East Readfield. His tomb marks the spot where his pulpit once stood. Descendants of Case and his 8 children still reside in Readfield.
