After Mr. Green settled in the ministry he for some years admitted (according to custom) some people to covenant & receive Baptism themselves & offer their children to Baptism, without coming into full communion to receive the Lord's Supper. These persons were said to enter into covenant or own their covenant or renew covenant & by some were sometimes called half members. This custom was tolerated till October in the year 1764. After that time he thought it his duty to baptize no children but those of parents in full communion. And here follows the names of the persons thus admitted.  N. B. Those with a cross to their names were afterward admitted to full communion: —
