[NOTE: At some point in history baptisms for 1802-1804 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. Only page 30 was numbered. Other numbering was added for web site. ]
