Births in the Town of Windham 
1847, 1849, 1850


An 1847 law required the school districts in each town of New York State to collect vital statistics. They ceased doing so after a few years, probably due to poor compliance. Windham's book is in the custody of the Windham Town Clerk, PO Box 96, Hensonville, NY 12439. Inexplicably no such records were made in Windham in 1848, perhaps due to the fact that the town of Ashland was created that year from parts of Windham and Prattsville. The original list was made according to school district, but here it has been placed in alphabetical order under the name of the child.
