Note:    The Register of Members occupies the front part of the original record. As it was written, each entry extends over two original pages. The left had page is occupied by columns headed:

“Names of Members”   “When & how received”

The right hand page is occupied by columns headed:

“Dismissed” “Died”  “Suspended”  “Readmitted” “Excom.”

This arrangement with  a few miner changes in column headings, lasts until the page transcribed on page 58. Besides the column data, the original record contains pencil notations, after  the members names, showing those that were set off the church of Kiskatom, in 1848.

For the purpose of this transcript, the column headings on the right had page have been omitted, as well as the column arrangement. All the data concerning each person has been faithfully transcribed, even to the duplication of the words “dec’d” or “died”, when these words appear on both original pages, on the line occupied by the member’s name. Generally speaking, the right hand page of the original record is mostly blank; this method can thus be followed with no crowding.

“ Items marked “!” are written in lead pencil in the original record.
