Deaths Recorded at
Grace Methodist Church
in Nassau, 1857-1903

Grace Methodist Church, now Grace United Methodist Church, was founded before 1820, and the church building was dedicated in autumn 1833 "opposite the Reformed Church"; this building was still in use in 1880. The church's present location is 38-42 Church Street in the village of Nassau, in the town of Nassau, Rensselaer County, NY. Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester, writing in 1880 in his History of Rensselaer County, states on page 430, "The records of the church are not well preserved...." But he adds that in 1880, the church "is at present in a flourishing condition." The source of the information on this page is a typescript "copied" by Mildred Adriance in 1973 from an unspecified earlier source, I hope the original churchbook. It is not specified in the typescript source whether the date is the date of death or the date of the funeral. If you have any questions or comments, please email me, Debby Masterson.
