BAPTISMS, MARRIAGES AND FUNERALS 1842-1844
By the Rev. Samuel Van Vechten, Ft. Plain, N.Y.
Rev. Van Vechten's records for the years 1842-1844 were found in Volume 44 of the Unpublished Miscellaneous Compiled
Records of the NYS D.A.R., page 259, 1931-32. This volume is available for viewing at the main New York City Public
Library on 5th Avenue, the NY State Library in Albany, and at the National D.A.R. Library in Washington, DC.
A note at the top says "In possession of Miss Edith A. Van Wyck, Melzingah Chapter, D.A.R., Beacon, N.Y." The contributing
D.A.R. Chapter wasn't noted and the present whereabouts of the original records are unknown. The site coordinator has no
information about individuals listed or the Rev. Mr. Van Vechten's church affiliation.
