Marriages at the First Reformed Dutch Church at Montville

(transcribed by John E. Sashenosky 1968)
(re-transcribed by Kevin Riley 2001)


I would strongly suggest anyone finding ( or not finding) ancestors here to check out LDS film # 0888747, records of the First Reformed Dutch Church at Montville. Sashenosky was not the most careful of scribes; he insisted on seeing the letter 'r' where 'z' should, for example. He consistently wrote Elirabeth and Elira for Elizabeth and Eliza. Except for obvious gaffes such as that, I have remained true to the spellings of the names and places in the manuscript.

There are gaps in the records; I am not sure how complete this version is. (Earlier marriages (1795-1835)are indexed in the "Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey" Vols. 4-9. These are available via the Persi at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne.)

A few of the marriages have an additional note or two (i.e., "a lovely day", "her brother present", etc). I have enclosed all names, dates and places. My ancestors here are John Henry Collerd and Sarah Willis, and their parents: Henry Collerd and Sarah Mourrison and William Mitchell Willis and Lurenda Hotchkiss.

Mahalo nui loa to Walt Olson of the Montville Historical Society for supplying the manuscript to me (and ultimately you, dear reader) My few notes are signed 'KR'.
