Richard Bedford’s Diary
101 Marriages and One Baptism

Transcribed by Tina Pastusic
September 2002

This material is reproduced with the permission of the Sullivan County Historical Society (SCHS). In November 2001, the SCHS purchased the Diary of the Reverend Richard Bedford from a couple in the Elmira, New York area. There had been an earlier article in the Elmira Star Gazette on how the diary was found in an old shed, which itself makes interesting reading. The diary contains birth, death and marriage records from 1850 through 1883. There are also records of deeds, letters, and records of transactions all dealing with people and events in or nearby to Sullivan County. The Reverend Bedford was an adjacent property owner and very close friend of John Campbell, the founder of Campbellville. Here we reproduce that part of his diary that covers 101 marriages and one baptism in this area, the great majority of which were transacted in Campbellvill itself.
