By Elder P. Wright of Newport, New York


The "Record of Marriages of Elder P. Wright of Newport, New York" was found in Volume 465 of the Unpublished Miscellaneous Compiled Records of the NYS D.A.R., pages 73-77 (1976-77). None of Rev. Wright's marriages took place in Newport. Perhaps he resided there but served a church in a neighboring town. However, as he traveled so far and wide and had a small town "beat", he appears to have been a circuit minister.

Transcriber's notes in parentheses were made by preparer Steven Knight or myself, and spellings are exactly as given in the original transcription. Neither Steven nor I have further info about individuals named in these records and refer you in advance to the appropriate county historical society. For your convenience, I put together an explanatory list of locations, which follows the marriage records.

A note says "These records are in the possession of Holland Patent member Mrs. Lawrence Alger of Barneveld, New York. Contributed by Holland Patent Chapter. Copied by Mrs. William M. Forbes." This volume is available for viewing at the main New York City Public Library on 5th Avenue, the NY State Library in Albany, and at the National D.A.R. Library in Washington, DC.

Elder Wright's records were typed by volunteer Steven Knight, who made the recent reading of the Fink's Basin Cemetery. Steven's researching his great-grandfather, Andreas Nabinger (ca. 1820 - ca. 1878), who emigrated from Baden/ Wurtemburg, Germany. Andreas came to the Town of Salisbury about 1850 with his wife Elizabeth Hoppanacher (sp?) (ca. 1818 - aft. 1880). They had 9 children that survived to adulthood. He's also seeking any info about his maternal grandparents William J. Warner (1830-1906) and wife Emily Jane Fineout (1835-abt. 1928), who are buried at Indian Castle Cemetery in Danube. If you have info to share, Steven looks forward to hearing from you.
