The original of the following document is in the collection of the Department of History of the Presbyterian Church U. S. A., 425 Lombard Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, it is the property of Susquehanna Valley Presbytery, and from them I obtained written permission to transcribe the document for publication on the Delaware County Genealogical Website. No part of it is to be published elsewhere without written permission. I know it will be a source of information to many; I was pleased to find my great, great paternal grandparents listed. Recently I was inspired to get the transcription completed, because this wonderful old Church, now known as the West Kortright Centre, has just been placed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. --Bernice Graham Telian, Town of Meredith Historian, January 22, 2003
