1847 - 1848 Marriages and Deaths

of the

Town of Stark

These listings of vital records for the Town of Stark for 1847 & 1848 were digitally prepared by volunteer BetteJo Caldwell from photocopies of typescripts provided to her. The transcriptions of the original records came from Volume 357 (1970-71) of the miscellaneous unpublished records of the New York State D.A.R., available for your perusal at the main branch of the New York City Public Library, at the State Library in Albany, NY, and at the D.A.R. Library in Washington, D.C. We hope this list provides clues to ancestral location and helps you better formulate questions when visiting Mohawk Valley societies or ordering mail searches. If you recognize anyone on this list, please drop a line to Martha so we can note it on this page.

As you scan the listings you'll see unusual spellings. They're not typos but can be attributed to well-known difficulties in reading fragile records with old handwriting, as well as assumptions made by the registrars at the time of registration. If a spelling differs from that of your ancestral surname, or marriages and deaths didn't take place in the town you thought your ancestors were from, don't pass them by. Jot them down...just in case. A date and location from these vital records can be used to search in the 1850 census or the info may turn out useful to others searching your surnames.

During years 1847 - 1850 some New York State counties officially recorded information about births, marriages and deaths. Then they just stopped. Not all towns recorded or preserved this early information so each town/county must be taken on a case-by-case basis. Required death registration didn't start in New York State until the early 1880s, over 30 years after the 1847 - 1849 events were recorded, and wasn't really enforced until just after 1900.
