ROMAN CATHOLIC BAPTISMS 1798-1799; 1803-1804


[NOTE: At some point in history these baptisms were copied from records which were fading, crumbling, or being eaten by insects. The transcriber indicated that certain information was missing or illegible. Sometimes the transcriber's interpretation of the signatures of witnesses does not match the names of people in attendance. Indications of slavery, are quoted here from statements in the Church records. Only page 30 was numbered. Other numbering was added for web site. ]
