Byron Marquis, a long time resident of that area obtained the old church records
that were found in the church coal house compiled all these notes in this website. Mr.
Byron Marquis, residing in Caldwell, Ohio and local historian originally had in his
possession of many of the older original records. Mr. Marquis sent these original records
to the Presbyterian Archives in Philadelphia, PA in 1979. I had personally visited with
him and he explained the months he had spend transcribing these records to his manual type
writer. He then allowed me to make a copy of these type written notes.
Dennis W. Schroll has compiled the following book in this website from the transcribed
copy formerly typed by Mr. Byron Marquis. Much effort was spent in proof reading the
original notes to ensure accuracy. No index is given because one had to simply use
the "find" function on your web browser to locate possible ancestors.
There are a great many birth, death and baptism records not available from court house or
cemetery records. Many of the old cemetery markers are not readable because the soft
face has worn or flaked away with age. One should still seek cemetery records
because some headstones were recorded long ago before so many became unreadable.
I wish to acknowledge my Grandmother Pedicord whom went to this church when only 5 years
old. She passed on several years ago in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Thanks, Dennis W. Schroll, January 18, 2000
