The following are copies of transcriptions of records contained in notebooks detailing early events in the congregation of the First Christian Church of Washington, PA. The church began in Williamsburgh and later moved to Washington. The notebooks were transcribed by the late Martha Lacock Nicholl and span the period from 1831 to 1877. In keeping with early handwriting, the letter “s” often appeared to be “f” and was transcribed as the latter.
NOTES: numbers in parenthesis indicate the page on which the individual(s) is mentioned in the accompanying records.
