MISCELLANEOUS HERKIMER COUNTY
"OUT-OF-COUNTY" MARRIAGE RECORDS
The marriages of local residents below were abstracted from the published records of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Cherry
Valley, Otsego County N.Y. and St. Luke's Protestant Episcopal Church, Richfield, Otsego County, N.Y. All spellings are exactly as in the
typescript. Both sets of records were copied by Alice Payne Garden (Mrs. Henry) of Utica for the General Winfield Scott branch NSDAR,
West Winfield, 1942. Full transcriptions of the marriage records she transcribed for these two churches are in Volume 167 of the
New York State D.A.R. records. This volume is available to the public for viewing in three locations in the U.S. - the New York
City Public Library (genealogical division; 5th Avenue and 42nd Street), the New York State Library in Albany, N.Y., and at the
main D.A.R. research library in Washington, D.C. Please contact these facilities directly for further inquiries about the lists.

See note in first entry on page for where to see this volume. Typed by Miss Florence K. Dowdell in 1929 from her ancestor's records. Wonder where the originals are now?
