1812 - 1912



The original typescript of the minister's list is bound in the Miscellaneous Compiled Records of the D.A.R., Volume 73, pages 257-259, 1935, available for your personal viewing in the genealogy room at the New York City Public Library. A note at the top says "Records from the Freysbush Methodist Church. Ministerial Record taken from a record kept by John I. Wendell, Local Elder." This list is useful if you have a record of marriage or baptism but don't know faith of your family or their minister, as well as to try to track the careers of ministers to see where possible surviving records might be located.

All spellings are exactly as on the original typescript, including Oneida, and blank boxes mean no information was given. I have no way of finding out where the original list is kept now, or if it has survived since 1935. For further information about persons named, please visit or order a search from the Montgomery County Dept. of History and Archives.
