An Interesting Paper Containing Names of People Who Lived in the Early Part of This Century.
In the history of the First Ref’d Dutch church of Coxsackie, given under this head two weeks since, was included quite a sketch of the Rev. Henry Ostrander who was pastor of the church from 1801 to 1810. Mr. Whitbeck brings us a subscription paper which was circulated during that time, and thinking it would interest the present generation to know the names of people who were living here more than four score years ago and were interested in the affairs of the church then, we publish the list entire. The paper is headed as follows:

Many of our citizens of today will notice names in the above which are very familiar to them, even if they are not means of their own relatives.
Note:--the following names may be the better for a little interpretation: Caylor is obviously Cuyler; Thillian is Killian Winne and so is Dorrance Thirtland, Kirtland. Michal knifer is the Michael Knifer who appears in the 1788 tax list. Archibale Mikar looks like Archibald McVickar. Henry Llomadue is Henry L’Hommendieu.
