The following lists were transcribed from original records back in the 1930s by (Mrs. Henry) Alice Payne Gardner, Utica, N.Y. for the General Winfield Scott Chapter N.S.D.A.R., West Winfield, NY. All spellings are as on the original typescripts. For a brief period in the late 1840s New York State clerks were supposed to keep records of births, marriages and deaths. Record-keeping was inconsistent from county to county and many of these records did not survive. The lone 1865 record here was probably done in conjunction with the 1865 NY State Census. No more records on hand, but this page will be updated later on in the winter.
