MEMBERSHIP LIST OF THE FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH 
 
(e.g. Church of Christ at Williamsburg) 
OF WASHINGTON PA

TABLE 2

Complied by Judith Florian, historian

This is my attempt to create a membership list for the First Christian Church of Washington, Washington Co., PA for use on this web site.  It is based on the church records transcribed by Mrs. Martha Lacock Nicholl, deceased, late of Washington, PA  Mrs. Nicholl presented the church with two notebooks she had prepared on the church's history.   One notebook is held by the church in Washington PA; the second notebook is held by the Disciple of Christ Historical Society in Nashville, TN.

Membership tables are based on Church records Submitted by Paula Schlichter Aug. 2006

Go to Membership Table 1 with beginning history of 1st Christian Church

Introduction Repeated for Tables 2: 

Washington, April 30th 1831

Baptist Church at this place met in church meeting, Elder WHEELER, presiding as moderator.  After the usual businefs (sic=business) had been disposed of Samuel Marshell arose and gave notice to the brethren that is (sic=it) was his intention to withdraw from the church and having briefly afsigned (sic=assigned) his reasons for the course he was about to pursue, requested that his name might be erased from the church book by the approbation of the church.  Brother R. B. CHAPLIN then arose and desired that his name might be joined with that of Brother MARSHELL in whatever the church might think proper to do in solution of his case. After some interchange of opinion and discufsion (sic=discussion) between Brother WHEELER and RUPLE, it was decided by a vote of the church, that the names of Brothers MARSHELL and CHAPLIN should be erased from the church book.

Church created August 1, 1841.

NOTE Assumptions had to be made about identities.  For example, an assumption was made about the identity of Joshua Martin where I made a new entry but I could be wrong.  I assume they did not mean Joshua Jr. since he was in trouble more and the other Joshua was given duties of responsibility. . Example: June 29, 1850, p.21 Br. Joshua MARTIN cited  for fornication. But, some Jr. entries could also be Joshua Martin of Matthew?    

I may have gotten other identities wrong. **If you find errors, please email me.

 

Some items do not fit with any particular name or are related to the entire Church body.  Some problems with dates or explanations of dates is also presented below.

(Dec. 22nd 1847)

(Webmaster's Note: Nothing is transcribed for dates from Dec 1847 to Aug 1848. Original record books would need checked to verify this much time was skipped by the Church's books, especially considering that all other years have documentation every two weeks usually; the longest period so far with no notations was the summer months of one year.  Possibly some event/s in the year 1848 prevented the Church from attending to their Minute Books?)

Aug. 30th 1848

(Webmaster's Note: I wonder if this is not for 1847 (?) rather than 1847, because #1 page 18 which is typed below has dates from 1849 and #2 the entries marked Aug and Oct would fall into the order of months in the year.  Since I am working from a transcript and NOT from the original Church book(s), I cannot say for certain that the Aug and Oct are correct in being transcribed as 1848.  Be aware it **appears** like these 2 entries could be for 1847.)

(Webmaster's Note: Nothing is transcribed for dates from Oct 1848 to May 1849. Original record books would need checked to verify this much time was skipped by the Church's books...)
