Contributed by Linda Johnson Slawson

This bible record was found in the Schermerhorn Family File in The Chenango County historical Society Museum in Norwich, Chenango, NY. Peter Schermerhorn and wife Rachael Edmonds were from Dover area of Dutchess County and later Otsego & Chenango County. All spelling, abreviations, incomplete dates, and  punctuation is as it appears in the copy from the Bible. In the Bible the name is spelled Schermehorn.
But in most census records and on their Tombstones it is Schermerhorn.
