The following was transcribed from Book 1 of marriages kept by the first permanent minister of the Church, Rev. Richard Webster. Webster kept excellent records; not only did he give the full names of both parties, plus the date, he included info like the parents, location, and extra notes.  After the death of Rev. Webster, these notes are not found in any of the entries of the subsequent ministers. 


As time went by, Rev. Webster’s methods did differ a bit.  In this first batch, the column headings are below.  Part way through, when his methods change, another set of column headings appear.  In a few places, I’ve added extra information, either to clarify Webster’s notes, or in a few cases to correct his mistakes.  My own notes appear in brackets and in red text, so as not to be confused with Webster’s.  Webster’s own notes appear in Italics.  Question marks denote something that could not be deciphered in certainty from the original writings.  In one or two cases, Rev. Webster must have forgotten the name and left the space with a blank line, i.e. “____________”

From this point, the entries change a bit.  They now include the names of both parents in many cases, as well as the occupation of the groom.  In one case, they even include the bride’s occupation.  The entries are also a bit more specific about the location of the marriages.  It is interesting to note that these marriages did not take place in the church, they took place in various homes.  Many were performed in Rev. Webster’s own home, the original Presbyterian Parsonage on West Broadway. 


Beneath the names of the principals, further info such as parents, residence, place of birth and occupation appear.
